** Updated March 19, 2020 **

At IPM we are working hard to keep our office environment clean and disinfected throughout the day and our staff are trained in proper cleaning and disinfecting procedures.

Currently we are screening all patients over the phone before they come into our office. Patients who exhibit specific symptoms or have a fever will be asked to consult with the doctor by telephone instead of in-office. We are implementing this temporary rule to protect the health and safety of our patients and staff.

If you have questions, please call reception at 949-600-5100

or e-mail: reception@iprogressivemed.com

Our current office hours (subject to change):

Monday-Friday 8:00am-4:30pm

Integrative measures you can implement:

Doctors at IPM recommend some or all of the following oral supplements to many patients who would like to take proactive measures against viral infection:

Use a xylitol nasal spray or silver nasal spray (when available), 2 sprays in each nostril at least twice a day. These items will clean the nasal tissues and wash out viruses, bacteria and environmental pollutants.

Nasal ozone insufflation also called “nozone” offers a more powerful preventive approach. Ozone is an effective anti-viral agent. Treatments may be provided by our medical assistants in our office. The treatment can be provided once a week or more often.

Nutritional Immune Drips may also be recommended to our patients and can be delivered in our office. Please call reception if you are interested in receiving therapy.

Please visit our popular immune supplement page to order products if needed.

 Regular practices to help prevent infection include:

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, an alcohol-based sanitizer can be used instead, but make sure to rub all areas of the hands thoroughly until dry.
  •  Do not touch your face or mouth before washing your hands.
  •  Stay away from large crowds and avoid unessential travel.
  •  Keep a regular sleep schedule, maintain a healthy diet, exercise and avoid alcohol.
  •  Follow the current COVID-19 recommendations set out by your state or county health authority.

Remember

Symptoms caused by COVID-19

  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Shortness of breath
  • Respiratory difficulties
  • Other symptoms similar to flu

 

Remember, if you feel you may be getting an infection:

  • Stay at home and treat the symptoms as you would any cold or flu. Most people who get the COVID-19 virus have mild symptoms. Younger, healthier patients tend to have milder symptoms. However, symptoms may include high fever and a dry cough.
  • If symptoms become more severe and you feel you require medical care, go to the closest emergency room which should be prepared to screen and test you for COVID-19 if necessary.
  • Our office does NOT have COVID-19 test kits. You will require a doctor’s prescription to get tested for COVID-19. Our doctors can provide a prescription for testing only if a patient meets specific criteria laid out by local health authorities. Testing locations are provided to those who have a prescription.
  • Patients who experience shortness of breath should go to the ER.
