A Transient Doctor for the Homeless
Voice of San Diego

Dr. Chris Searles holds office hours all over town. He’s both a family physician and psychiatrist, and he travels in mobile clinics to places where the homeless gather, whether they’re in North Park, Pacific Beach or Chula Vista. In the winter, he treats people at San Diego’s cold-weather homeless shelter. Searles is director of clinical outreach at St. Vincent de Paul Village and an associate professor at University of California, San Diego.
