Over the past several weeks, we have all been forced to modify our routines during the COVID 19
We are pleased to announce that, based on recently updated guidelines, we will be fully opening
our Simi Valley office for in-office visits and testing as necessary. It is important
that our patients understand their health and safety is our first priority. For this reason, we are still
offering telemedicine for our high-risk patients.
Below is a list of policies we have enacted to ensure the safety of our staff and patients.
1- All our patients and staff are routinely screened for signs and symptoms including fever, cough,
or shortness of breath.
2- All our patients and staff are required to wear face coverings when in the office.
3- We will continue to follow the enhanced social distancing protocol we implemented several
weeks ago. While we anticipate having fewer patients in the waiting room, which has already
been modified to accommodate social distancing, patients can also wait outside of the office or
in their cars. We will notify patients when their appointment is ready.
4- We will continue to follow the enhanced cleaning protocol we implemented several weeks ago.
While we are always overly concerned about the cleanliness of our office, please note that we
have made steps to increase the frequency and intensity with which we clean high-traffic areas.
5- We will continue to restrict the number of people in the office by asking that patients come to
their appointment alone or, when necessary, with only a single family member or caregiver.
6- If you are experiencing symptoms that are worrisome for COVID 19, please do not come to the
office. If you have an office visit that needs to be changed to a telemedicine appointment
because you are not feeling well, there will be no penalty for the change.
As always, the safety of our patients and our staff is our primary concern. We believe that, by taking
these precautions, we can safely resume caring for our patients and prevent any problems caused by
further delays in treatment. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us in the office.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Dr. Shahrzad Shareghi and the entire Cardiovascular Care Center team
