How do you protect patients, doctors and patients in a pandemic and still deliver first rate medical care to thousands of patients?
(San Bernardino, Calif.)With Covid-19 cases again increasing in San Bernardino County and a possible second wave expected by winter, Dr. Albert Arteaga, president and founder of LaSalle Medical Associates, has been working to ensure that his clinics are safe for patients, medical professionals and office staff.
“LaSalle is implementing the best patient solutions possible with direction from Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and American Medical Association (AMA) guidelines,” Dr. Arteaga said. “LaSalle is handling 600 to 700 phone consults per week, with video when possible.”
LaSalle’s new guidelines for patient care include:
“We want to establish a new normal as close to the old normal as possible,” said Dr. Arteaga. “If we put everyone in a space suit that would work, but it’s not practical. We are minimizing risk to the providers and the patients.”
Dr. Arteaga is available for interviews and to answer any media questions about Covid-19.
The LaSalle medical clinics are at 17577 Arrow Blvd. in Fontana, 1505 West 17th St. and 565 N. Mt. Vernon Ave. in San Bernardino, 790 Foothill Blvd, in Rialto,14544 Seventh Street, in Victorville,and 16455 Main St. in Hesperia
