Dr. Adrian James

To all of our patients, we want you to know that first and foremost, we are here to serve.

During this pandemic of Covid 19, here are a few reminders; I want you to be aware of and to practice:    

Remember that Covid 19 has affected everyone either directly or indirectly.  People with underlying medical conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension), asthma, or chronic bronchitis, are at high risk for becoming seriously ill from Covid 19.  

What to do?  Prevention is key:

  1. Practice social distancing of least six feet apart from one another
  2. Cover and cough into your sleeve, not your hand even if you are wearing a mask then wash or sanitize your hands
  3. Change your mask or wash your mask (cloth) daily
  4. It is safer to have your groceries delivered than going into the grocery store. Some stores even waiving the delivery free for seniors.  
  5. Wipe down surfaces you touch frequently. (Cabinet, doorknobs, remotes, cell phones etc.)

Remember to take medications as prescribed, keep your appointments even if they are telephone visits, some screenings can be done while complying with Stay-in orders (Colon Cancer screening).  

We are all in this together.  Let us support each other and comply with the guidelines.  We are here to serve. The more we do apart, the more we can fight this together!

West Oakland does not offer emergency care. In case of emergency dial 911 or go to the nearest hospital.

If you are experiencing a symptom that concerns you, and if you are uncertain whether emergency care is required, you may obtain advice by calling the facility where you routinely receive care. Medical staff at that site will advise you about whether emergency care is recommended.

After regular business hours calls are answered by an answering service. After hours calls of an urgent nature are referred to the on-call physician who will help you decide whether to seek emergency care
