CMO Patient Bulletin
To our faithful patients and the community:
I wanted to let everyone know that in mid-December, I was diagnosed with COVID-19, presumptively contracted in the office from a patient.
It progressed into a serious Covid pneumonia and eventually required my admission to the sub-ICU at Hoag Hospital for nine days.
I am home now recovering. I am still on oxygen and remain at rest, with the exception of some daily exercises.
I am told this will be a month-to-month recovery. I am prepared for slow, steady improvement.
Naturally, this requires me to take a sabbatical from seeing patients. For those that had seen me in the PDQ Orange office, my wife Mary and my mentee Nichole Rogers will do an excellent job caring for you.
For my Laguna Beach patients at Caduceus on Thalia, my younger associate Dr. John Sanguedolce is the physician. I highly recommend for you in my absence. We have identical philosophies on patient care and I know you will really like him.
Although there were a few rough days in there, it feels good to be in recovery mode and look forward to a continued steady recovery.
