DO NOT NEGLECT YOUR HEALTH. WE ARE OPEN AND READY TO SERVE OUR PATIENTS.

Communicate with your physicians

  • Do not delay the necessary medical care over the fear of COVID-19. Delay may cause a mild health condition to become a severe illness and may result in worsened long-term health consequences.
  • Many physicians offer telehealth visits, and patients of all ages love them! Check with your doctor to see if telehealth visits are available.
  • Communicate with your doctor or nurse by phone or even email.
  • Talk to your primary care doctor about any upcoming tests or procedures.
  • If you must visit the doctor in-person, call first to understand their new policies.
  • If you think you are sick, call the office first, and follow their guidance.

Take your medications

  • Continue to take your medications as prescribed. Do not put yourself at risk by reducing or skipping doses. Call your primary care physician if you have any questions about your medications or side effects.
  • Ask your doctor and pharmacist for a larger supply of your medicines. 90-day mail-order supplies are commonly available and convenient. Call your health plan to enroll in these services.
  • Limit in-person visits to the pharmacy. Pick up all your prescriptions at once.
  • Call prescription orders in ahead of time. Use drive-thru windows, curbside services, mail-order, or other delivery services.

Make a Commitment to Wellness 

Primary care physicians are committed to ensuring patients get the very best of care and don’t miss any critical visits during this time of social distancing. Many practices have arranged to conduct a wellness visit virtually to limit the potential for exposure and would like to connect with patients in the comfort and safety of their homes.  Below is a list of items that could be addressed as part of a virtual visit.

  • Review and update of medical and family history
  • Reconciliation of medications
  • Review of specialists and providers providing care
  • Measurement of height, weight, BMI, blood pressure, other medically necessary routine measurements as we are able
  • Review of preventative screenings
  • Review of risk factors for depression
  • Review of treatment options which may improve health and quality of life
  • Review of functional ability and the activities of daily living
  • Recommendation of health education or specific disease management programs

We highly recommend a yearly flu shot. The  best way to prevent infection is to wash hands frequently for at least 20 seconds, use alcohol based sanitizer if soap and water are not available, cough into your elbow, avoid touching your face (eyes/nose/mouth), clean your mobile devices often, limit social interactions, stay home if you are sick and stay away from people who are sick.

I have been seeing Roger Hodge MD for over 16 years. When I tell you he is a God sent. Very caring great bedside manners, very knowledgeable and treat you like a person and not a chart. 

SherylPatient

Dr Vallejo is a marvelous physician who cares about her patience and is very thorough. Best Dr I have.

LindaPatient

Always an excellent experience with Dr. Somai and her staff! Dr. Somai is a phenomenal Rheumatologist!

KarenPatient

We’ve (pretty much the whole family) been seeing Dr. Timothy Mangrum for several years. I have never seen anyone better. He and his staff are wonderful. He actually takes time to listen not just run in for a minute and leave. Any time someone is looking for a doctor, I always give them Dr. Mangrum’s number.

KimaPatient

I have been seeing Roger Hodge MD for over 16 years. When I tell you he is a God sent. Very caring great bedside manners, very knowledable and treat you like a person and not a chart. At one time I didn’t have insurance. I paid for my visit and one of the medications were around $500. That man kept me up in samples for a year and a half. I so love him and would not change him for anyone. I’m a nurse myself and it would be so easy and convenient to change doctors because they are as well good. But I have never came across a physician that will take his time to sit down and actually listen to what you have to say. Then he will give you options but will tell you what he think is best. Roger Hodge MD you are the absolutely the best !!!!!

SherylPatient

I’ve been going to doctors in this practice for 49 years and have been a patient of Dr. Benjamin Hill for the last several years. Dr. Hill is the finest Doctor I’ve ever known. He’s not only brilliant but he’s friendly and is willing to spend as much time as necessary with each patient.

PattiPatient

I really appreciate Dr. Somai my rheumatologist always listening with care and compassion for my on going health issues. The way she consults with my primary care doctor is very important to me. Her front desk staff is most pleasant.

CarolynPatient
