In the recent weeks we have seen an uptick in positive COVID-19 cases at our drive through COVID-19 testing facility. The good news is that most COVID positive people, especially those who are fully vaccinated and boosted, are just experiencing mild cold-like symptoms. We are recommending all people ages 5+ get vaccinated and boosted for COVID-19 if eligible. We have vaccines and boosters available in our office. You can schedule a COVID-19 test, vaccine or booster on our website. Click “book an appointment” under the COVID-19 tab or give us a call at 310-544-6858. PVMG providers are also able to prescribe Paxlovid when needed. Paxlovid is an EUA FDA approved treatment for COVID-19 that works to minimize symptoms.

This May we want to remind our patients that per Los Angeles County guidelines, masks are still required to be worn in our office, regardless of your vaccination status. Also, please take note of our revised office hours on Monday, May 30th (Memorial Day). We will be open 10 am to 4 pm on Monday, maintaining our regular hours throughout the remainder of the weekend.

Lastly, we recommend scheduling those back-to-school physicals early, especially if you have a favorite PVMG provider you’d like to see. Summer is also the perfect time to bring those college kids in to see us while they are home! Annual physicals are crucial (for adults too) in helping make sure vaccinations are up to date, to check on your vitals, and ensure that your overall health is where it should be.

Again, we want to remind you that your PVMG providers are here for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
