Your Concierge Physician Reminds You It Is Still Important to GET YOUR FLU SHOT

January 28, 2014

If you have not gotten your flu shot yet I would encourage you to get a flu shot as soon as possible. The flu that is going around this season is very dangerous. I was reminded of that this morning when I was seeing a patient in the intensive care unit at Torrance Memorial. The patient in the next bed was 50 years old and is probably going to die from the flu virus. I know it seems like it only happens to other people but this is a reality and very preventable.
The flu vaccine does contain the correct strain to protect against this deadly virus.
Please make sure that you and your family and friends have gotten their vaccination.
If you think you have the flu please contact me as there is medication that might be helpful.
As your concierge doctor I welcome your comments, questions and suggestions. Please contact me by email, text or phone.

Please call 310 373-5566 if you would like to come in for your flu shot.
