As is well known now, the COVID-19 outbreak has become a severe health emergency. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends that people stay at home and follow social distancing to minimize the spread of the virus and cross-infection. However, it is still very important to maintain your health. Our offices are open, and we now offer telehealth (virtual visits) so you can obtain care as needed during this time in a convenient and safe manner. Certain conditions may require an in-person visit, so call our office to determine what is right for you.
We are following CDC guidelines and infection control measures to contain the coronavirus impact and keep you, our staff, and our community safe. Our Family Care Centers offices are regularly sanitized and cleaned. Masks and other protective equipment as appropriate are worn by all staff and patients. Check the local guidelines and resources here.
Family Care Centers has been offering two ambulatory COVID-19 testing sites, one in Woodbridge, Irvine, and the other in Fountain Valley. Our Woodbridge, Irvine based COVID-19 testing site is accessible to anyone who is experiencing coronavirus-like symptoms and needs a test. Our Fountain Valley-based COVID-19 testing site is accessible only for preoperative or pre-surgery COVID tests.
About Pre-Op COVID-19 Tests: Preoperative tests are required for patients who have an upcoming surgery and have been instructed by their surgeon or physician to get a Pre-Surgery COVID-19 Test done for verification that the patient isn’t infected. It is also important to note that after the test, the patient needs to quarantine themselves until their procedure so they do not infect themselves between the testing date and the date of the procedure.
The office hours of our Fountain Valley and Irvine locations have not changed. Only our Costa Mesa’s urgent care center’s business hours are temporarily reduced to 8 AM to 5 PM. Click here to check business hours for all our urgent and primary care locations.

For the convenience of our patients, we have activated telehealth or “video visit” services for both primary care and urgent care. Our telehealth services allow you to connect with our healthcare providers via video from the comfort of your home. Our goal is to ensure continued access to your providers so that you receive the high-quality healthcare services you need – even in the midst of a crisis like the Covid-19 pandemic.
