Independent Medical Group (IMG), a minority-owned and led healthcare provider, offers fast and free testing of infectious diseases HIV, Hepatitis C, and STDs to some of the most vulnerable and marginalized communities across the state of Florida, while offering affordable treatment to help bridge the healthcare gap. Founded seven years ago, IMG's core staff of experienced medical professionals include doctors, nurse practitioners, disease interventionists and case managers ensuring that all patients receive the attention and integrated care needed.

IMG's Health Clinics have a presence in Miami, Pompano, Orlando, Bonita Springs, Plantation, Palm Bay, Palm Beach and Tampa. Additionally, IMG's 12 mobile clinics expand outreach beyond their brick and mortar locations. New walk-in and mobile clinics are planned to launch through 2022. 

Millennial co-founders, Clifford W. Knights II and Steve Vixamar found that the disparate treatment of the underserved community led to individuals not getting the medical attention they needed. From the foundation of their 20-year partnership, they have focused their entrepreneurial efforts on helping those in need, getting individuals access to basic healthcare tools.

"We're excited to introduce our re-brand and new user-friendly website that provides useful educational resources and more information on how to eliminate the stigma of HIV and Hepatitis C in the community." 
- Clifford W. Knights II, CEO of Independent Medical Group

The dynamic community healthcare organization recently sponsored Miami Beach Pride at the highest Diamond sponsorship level, demonstrating IMG's deep support for the LGBTQ+ community. Participation included free Hep C, and STD testing, as well as the administering of Covid-19 vaccinations, (also completely free of charge) throughout the week-long celebration of unity and love.

"Your best ability is availability. IMG strives to be available to service the community no matter where they are." - Steve Vixamar, COO of Independent Medical Group

Committed to helping people receive accessible healthcare, IMG routinely partners with half-way houses, homeless shelters and correctional facilities to reach those who may be overlooked. IMG's mobile clinics also allow for the less fortunate to have healthcare access that they may otherwise never receive. Community remains at the heart of IMG's mission, while the brand will continue making strides to combat the spread of HIV, Hep C, and STDs through preventative care and educational resources.
