Meet our New Internal Medicine Physician-

We are excited to welcome Dr. Smitha Sathyaprakash to Caduceus Family Physicians. Dr. Sathyaprakash is a board-certified Internal Medicine physician with a passion for providing comprehensive healthcare to patients 18 years of age and up. She completed her Internal Medicine Residency at Central Michigan University. With nine years of clinical experience, she offers expertise in diagnosing and managing a wide range of adult medical conditions. She is committed to delivering patient-centered care, emphasizing preventive and Obesity medicine, and building strong doctor-patient relationships to promote overall well-being.

She sees patients at Caduceus at the Packing House in Yorba Linda and Caduceus Jamboree in Irvine.

The influenza vaccine is still available now at all Caduceus locations while supplies last. You can cut your risk of coming down with the flu by about half by simply getting vaccinated. And if you’re vaccinated and still get the flu, it’s likely to be a much shorter, less severe case. You'll need a flu shot each year as the strains of the viruses change and evolve from one flu season to the next.

Everyone should get it: age 6 months and older. It is especially crucial for the elderly, young children, pregnant women, and individuals with underlying health conditions. Influenza, a common respiratory illness, can have severe consequences, especially for vulnerable populations. The flu vaccine is updated annually to target the specific strains expected to circulate during the flu season. Of note, pregnant women should not receive the nasal spray version of the vaccine.
