To Our Valued Patients,

With the evolving situation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, effective immediately, we will be suspending all non-urgent eye care. Moreover, any non-emergent or elective surgery will also have to be postponed. We will continue to remain open for patients with urgent and emergent concerns only. It is important to us to keep these patients out of the emergency room so our healthcare heroes on the front lines can be available for the patients that need them the most.

Our staff will continue to answer calls and scheduling appointments to the best of their ability.  In addition, if appropriate, Dr Patel can be available for telemedicine visits via online video chat. If you would like to schedule a telemedicine appointment with Dr. Patel, please call our office first to determine eligibility and to obtain an appointment time. Instructions for how to connect to the telemedicine appointment will be given at that time.

We hope to see you back in our office in the not too distant future. Stay safe and stay healthy!

Election Day – Get Out and Vote

Americans are voting less and less. Voting is projected by some to be as low as 40% in this election. Most democracies in the world have a much high participation in the election process.

Please participate. Study the issues. Spend time in learning what the candidates stand for and what the ballot measures and various initiatives mean to your area. Our democracy depends on an educated populace voting for the best candidates for each position.

I would further advise you to pay less attention to the media campaigns and more attention to the actual written ballot measures and more attention to the actual candidates’ position on issues. Media hype and negative campaigning has too much effect on voting in America.

Most important of all. Get out and vote.
