Many of my patients, facebook friends, and colleagues have reached out to me asking how to help.
Here are some of the ways we can join together to help our communities get through this difficult time.
1. Safely check in on family members, friends etc (a text, phone call or video chat is a wonderful way to help everyone feel connected)
2. Be informed. Make sure to use a valid information about COVID-19. I recommend relying on verified sources (such as the Centers for Disease Control or the World Health Organization)
Grocery donations could be delivered to:
The Community Resource Center
1585 N. Rand Road
Palatine, IL 60067
My virtual office is open Monday-Saturday from 9-5 pm if you need a medical assistance.
My pledge to patients is to provide medical services without any compansation untill August 1, 2020. On the other hand I need to retain my emploees and cover operational expenses.
