Regarding Your Scheduled Appointments

Your health and welfare is very important to us at LIMPA. Because of this and the COVID-19 outbreak, new recommendations by the CDC and the LA Public Health Department have evolved our process for your safety. Please be patient as during this outbreak it will take longer to answer messages, refill medications and your appointment wait times might be longer.

During this critical time, we are seeing patients via telemedicine only for both regular and sick visits. All regular appointments will continue using telemedicine including well child appointments. If you have seen the doctor by telemedicine for a sick visit and designated to have testing done for COVID-19, you will be told to report to the clinic and remain in your car.

The following protocol will be instituted:

  • Upon Arrival At the Clinic

    Please call our isolation cell phone number at 225-249-9918 so we know you are here. All payment for services must be made by credit card/charge card only over the phone at time of arrival. We are asking you not go through the regular clinic entrance.

  • Two Options For Waiting

    During your car appointment, your temperature will be taken and flu and coronavirus swab test will be done carside through your window by the nurse. Please wear a mask if possible. It is helpful if you stop any medications that reduce fever such as Tylenol, ibuprofen, motrin or aleve 6 hours prior to your appointment to get a true temperature.

  • Testing & Results

    We will send any necessary prescriptions and notify you of results. Please note: coronavirus test results via Labcorp or Quest can take 7 days or longer. Please make sure we have a good working number.

We greatly appreciate your patience through this virus outbreak. Remember to keep your regular chronic medical condition visits via telemedicine with us as staying healthy is the best way to fight this disease.
