Frischer Medical Group Statement on COVID-19
To our highly valued patients:
The COVID-19 pandemic is a new and very serious threat. Everyone’s movement has been greatly restricted in an effort to prevent the further spread of this disease, and to “flatten the curve.” Recent data suggests that everyone can be susceptible, but the severity often rises with age and the presence of other serious illnesses.
In response to this health crisis, our office has established new policies. We offer our patients the option of having a telephone consultation, a telemedicine video consultation, or if necessary, an office visit with one of us. Routine medical visits will be held over the phone or by video – consistent with CDC, State of California, and Los Angeles County directives – limiting your need to leave your home.
Any of these options can be scheduled through our staff during our usual office hours. During any of these visits your doctor will have access to your records, consult directly with you, and order tests or medicine as needed. Your insurance will be billed as usual.
It is our usual practice to carefully sanitize our exam rooms and waiting room. During this epidemic, we are doing so continuously through the day for the health and safety of all of us. In addition, our staff is screening patients on the phone so that we can maintain a safe office environment.
It is extremely important to us to always be here for your medical needs. We are 100% dedicated to your health and wellbeing.
We wish you good health. Please stay safe.
