During this crisis our focus has shifted to fill the immediate need of caring for the health of our patients while we all are unable to leave our homes.
In effort to do our part in keeping the community safe, we are happy to announce our clinicians can treat you via telemedicine.
Same day appointments available.
We are now offering Telemedicine Services for medical inquiries. Patient's must be over the age of 18, and in California.
Telemedicine (also referred to as "telehealth" or "e-health") allows health care professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients in the comfort of their own homes using telecommunications technology. Telemedicine allows patients to access medical expertise quickly, efficiently and without traveling to a physician's office - limiting exposure and practicing social distancing.
Andre Yousefia MD is Board Certified in Internal Medicine.
Visit length: This will be for a cumulative time of 20-min consult with the physician and supporting clinicians/staff. Please remember that reviewing your chart and coordinating care as well as charting today’s medical records and calling in prescriptions contribute to this time allotment.
Prescriptions: If a prescription fill is needed, we are able to fill a prescription; however, we do NOT prescribe opioid pain medicines or other medicines that can be addictive such as benzodiazepines (klonopin, xanax, valium) or stimulants (ritalin, amphetamine).
No-shows or Cancellations: No-Shows or cancellations without 24-hrs will be charged at the provider’s normal rate with no rescheduling or refunds given.
Forms: Forms or letters requested to be complete will be at an additional charge of $ 40.00 per form. (DMV, missed work, travel letter).
Insurance: Our charge for telemedicine is $ 120.00. If you have insurance, we can send a claim to your insurance on your behalf and have them reimburse you. We will provide a copy of the claim to you so that you may submit and follow up with your insurance to obtain reimbursement.

Improved access to medical care by enabling a patient to remain in his/her office (or at a remote site) while the physician obtains test results and consults from healthcare practitioners at distant/other sites.
More efficient medical evaluation and management.
Obtaining expertise of a distant specialist.
A safer way to receive medical care without needing to go to a physician's office and risk exposure to other contagious viruses.
As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks associated with the use of telemedicine. These risks include, but may not be limited to:
In rare cases, information transmitted may not be sufficient (e.g. poor resolution of images) to allow for appropriate medical decision making by the physician and consultant(s);
Delays in medical evaluation and treatment could occur due to deficiencies or failures of the equipment;
In very rare instances, security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy of personal medical information;
In rare cases, a lack of access to complete medical records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reaction or other judgment error;
