To our dear patients:

 

The Family Health Center of Benicia remains open despite the Solano County Shelter-In-Place Advisory.

We are seeing both Office and Telephone visits in order to best serve our diverse patient populations.

Telephone Visits are appropriate for:

-Any person with cough or fever within the last week

-Any person with suspected COVID-19 exposure

-Any Medicare patients with issues that can be handled effectively over the phone.

For phone visits, any vital signs provided by home equipment such as ht, weight, blood pressure and pulse is helpful.

Office Visits are appropriate for:

-Patients without cough, fever, or exposure risk presenting for routine care such as Women's Health, diabetes management, chronic pain or preventative care.

-Any Medicare patients with issues that cannot be handled effectively over the phone.

Patients 65 and older should strongly consider telephone visits if feasible.
