Let Our Family Care for Yours

Good health should be simple: it should be simple for you to find doctors who can give you and your family the care you need when you don’t feel well…or better yet, when you’re healthy and want to stay that way. And it should be simple for you to find care that’s close to home, from doctors who speak your language and understand what’s important to you.

AltaMed health centers put everything you need, in one place—doctors, tests, treatments, and medicines. We have bilingual health care professionals in your neighborhood. In fact, many of our doctors live in the communities they serve. We’re dedicated to helping individuals and families get the right care they need to grow healthy.

Focus on Routine and Preventive Care

We encourage our patients to start a relationship with a primary care doctor who can get to know you and your health needs and give you regular checkups and screenings. These doctors can also help you make simple changes to keep you healthy or refer you to a specialist for additional care.

General medicine

Primary Care

A primary care doctor treats all the adult members in your family, and they are knowledgeable about a wide variety of medical concerns. Besides giving you immunizations and routine screenings (like blood pressure, weight, cholesterol, blood sugar), they can help you manage chronic, or ongoing conditions, such as asthma, diabetes, heart problems, arthritis, and high blood pressure. Even if your health is good, overall, a primary care doctor can help you lose weight, reduce stress, become more active, and achieve other health goals.

Sometimes, an illness or injury may require more specialized care from another kind of doctor, or even a whole medical team. A primary care doctor should still be your first contact. They can order tests, refer you to specialists, help plan your care, and get you back on the road to being healthy.

Dental services

Dentistry

Everyone wants a bright, shiny smile, but did you know the health of your teeth and mouth are important to the rest of your body? Besides causing you pain, tooth problems such as cavities and bleeding gums may be linked to heart attacks. If you already have a condition such as diabetes, anemia, HIV/AIDS, or cancer, your risk for oral infections, tooth decay, and gum disease is higher.

AltaMed can help make dental exams and treatments part of your healthy habits. We want you and your entire family to keep your teeth as long as possible, which is why we provide many preventive services, including full dental exams with digital X-rays, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and oral health education.

Geriatrics

Geriatrics

As we age, we all have different health care needs. No matter how healthy you are, you can’t get away from aging! But you can stay well, and get the right care to help you maintain a healthy life. 

AltaMed has doctors who specialize in helping you age well. They’re called geriatric physicians, and they’re trained in the aging process. They focus on some of the risks older adults face, including osteoporosis, heart disease, and sleep disorders. Our geriatric specialists can also refer you or a loved one to other services that promote health and self-sufficiency.

Health Screenings

Health Screenings

Even healthy adults need regular health screenings. From your head to your toes, and at every age and stage, we meet the screening and immunization guidelines put forth by the agencies that include the U.S. Preventive Services Taskforce, the American Diabetes Association, and the Centers for Disease Control.

If you’re healthy, we’ll try to keep you that way with regular screenings of your blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, teeth, eyes, and weight; if you’re a woman, that also includes Pap smears and mammograms. If you are at increased risk for, or have, common conditions like diabetes or hypertension, you’ll need a few more tests to help make sure you’re moving in the right direction.

And we are here to help caregivers too. Our services include care management, home visits, and limited in-home services, like homemaker assistance and respite hours.

To qualify for Senior Supportive Programs, seniors do not need health insurance, but must: 
 

  • Be 60 years of age or older

  • Reside in Los Angeles County

Behavioral Health

Behavioral Health

As a woman, it’s important to take care of your behavioral health. Women are much more likely to suffer from major depression, anxiety, and the negative effects of stress. And no matter if the cause is physical, mental, or emotional, we want you to feel comfortable and confident to seek out treatment. 

For some people, these feelings may be temporary and quickly resolved with counseling or peer support groups. Others may require more focused treatment and even medication to help them feel better. We’re dedicated to connecting you with the right care: compassionate, personalized, and confidential. Remember, you are not alone.
