Important Information Alert
A NOTICE TO OUR PATIENTS:
There is a lot of information currently circulating regarding the Coronavirus. We would like to inform you of some facts regarding this illness.
Coronavirus usually causes an upper respiratory tract illness much like the common cold. Patients with this new coronavirus have had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of fever, cough, and shortness of breath according to the CDC. There is no specific treatment for coronavirus, yet most infected patients will recover fully on their own.
It’s still cold and flu season and the same practices that stop the spread of these common illnesses are recommended. Below are a few tips:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (sing Happy Birthday to yourself twice). Alcohol hand sanitizers are also effective.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with those who may be ill.
- If you are sick please stay home (except to get medical care). Keep sick children home from school.
- Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow. Wash your hands afterward.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces (ex. cell phone, computer keyboard, doorknobs, remote controls, etc.)
If you or a family member have traveled recently to an area of risk (China, Japan, Iran, South Korea or Italy), or if you think you may have been exposed to the virus AND have symptoms of respiratory illness you should contact the Public Health Department at (916) 558-1784.
Patient Review: “Dr. Hollander’s office has twice seen me day-of, without an appointment, because of issues I was having with my feet. Incredibly nice guy who also helped me understand my issue and a game-plan for prevention in the future. I really appreciated all that Dr. Hollander and his team provided.” ~M.B.
Living in a fast-paced world keeps everyone on their feet, quite literally. Yet foot pain is often ignored. The result is discomfort that can slow you down and reduce your quality of life. No one wants to set aside their morning run or miss a chance to spend a day walking through wine country. Our mission is to provide an exceptional experience that keeps you on your feet—one step at a time!”
