Our clinic is located in an inner city neighborhood called Frogtown, one of the most diverse areas in St. Paul and home to most of our patients. It was coined as such due to the marshy environment of the area and subsequent plethora of frogs in the late 1800s when people began settling here.

Since its inception, Frogtown has been home to several different immigrant and refugee populations including Polish, Irish, German, Scandinavian, and more recently, Southeast Asians, Latino, and East African. Frogtown is within walking distance of the Minnesota State Capitol.
