COVID – 19
Commitment to your health at this unusual time
We are dedicated to the health and well-being of our patients and staff. To minimize your risk and ours, we are using telemedicine for all patient evaluations, unless there is a compelling urgent reason for a patient to be seen in the office. Call our office to arrange a telemedicine visit with Dr. Shenkman.
Our office hours remain unchanged at this time, and Dr. Shenkman or a covering physician is available 24/7 if any urgent questions arise.
If you have fevers, cold or flu-like symptoms, and signs of respiratory illness such as coughing or shortness of breath, please contact your primary care provider or call your nearest urgent care location.
For tele-health virtual appointments, please call us at 818-938-9505
