COVID-19 Vaccine Information

The State of New Jersey has a registration system where you can register to get the COVID-19 Vaccine.  We recommend everyone register as soon as possible.  If you have any questions regarding the vaccine or COVID-19, please feel free to call the office and schedule an appointment to get them answered.  We can continue to accomodate you in our newly renovated office with social distancing or via TeleMedecine visit on the phone or computer.

Vaccines are being given to those determined to be the most susceptible first and this will expand as more vaccines and sites become available.  Registering in the above system will surely help this process of distributing the vaccine to 4-5 million New Jersey residents as is the goal by May 2021. This is a daunting task and everyone's cooperation and patience will help our community get protected and assuredly will save lives.

 

 

     ADAPTING TO COVID-19

 

Dear Patients,

In these unprecedented times, we wanted to share with you our continued guidance on how best to manage the difficult challenges ahead.  We have spent the past few days preparing to be available for your medical needs despite the obvious challenges ahead.  While they may seem insurmountable at times, we are confident that together, we will overcome.

While 'social distancing' has suddenly become the norm, and words like 'quarantine' and 'isolation' take over our lives, our first challenge is to continue to care for and interact with you, our patients.  We are proud to have set up TELEMEDICINE SERVICES so that we can stay connected while taking the necessary precautions to reduce the risk of spread within our community.  The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have proclaimed that these services will be covered under your current health plans, and to date, it seems most Commercial Insurance Plans are following this lead.

The addition of Telemedicine will not only allow us to stay connected to you, it will also help our community comply with social distancing. We expect to have less patients waiting together in the waiting room in the upcoming days/weeks.  Furthermore, we are screening patients for symptoms and/or high risk exposure, and guiding them with the appropriate care and services.  These new practices will allow our continued commitment of optimal care for our patients all while reducing the chance of exposure at the office for those that need to be seen in person for various reasons.

If you have been to the office lately, you may have noticed that we have instituted a text/call reminder service for appointments. We will use this system to share further information with you.  Please also check back here or call the office with other questions.

Sincerely,

Your Primary Care Team at Family Doctors Associates

 

Put your care in our hands...

Team

Dr. Rajesh Patel

A lifelong native of Central Jersey, Dr. Patel has had the privilege of completing all of his education and training in his home state.  After graduating from Rutgers University and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey - School of Osteopathic Medicine (UMDNJ-SOM), he completed Family Practice residency training at Union Hospital and at Christ Hospital.

Since completion of his training, he has spent over four years working at Linden Family Medical with his mentor.  During this time he has had the honor of serving as a physician for the New Jersey State Police - Well Trooper program.  He also continues to serve as a physician at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey where he covers medical care for major events such as concerts and sporting events including the New York Giants and New York Jets football games, and the Super Bowl XLVIII.

Dr. Patel now strives to continue the tradition of compassionate, quality care that is the standard set by Dr. Gandotra at Family Doctors Associates.

In Memory of: Dr. Satya Gandotra

"I've always thought of myself as an 'old school' doctor, attracted to medicine for the primary notion of helping people.  I truly enjoy bringing comfort and a better lifestyle to my patients.  That's the way I felt about the medical profession in 1971 when I began practicing and it's how I feel today...In my opinion, the practice of medicine must focus on the personal attention, compassion, technology and above all, excellent patient-doctor communication.  Spending quality time listening, really listening to patients is not just respectful, it's essential to proper diagnosis and ongoing care.  Today some professionals consider this too demading.  I don't think so.  It's what I'd want for my own family."

Usha James, Advance Practice Nurse 

Usha James brings with her 2 decades of experience in direct patient care.  This includes work in numerous levels of medical care from well visits of children to care of the critically ill in a hospital setting.  Furthermore, she maintained a dedication to education for herself and those around her by serving as a clinical instructor for students and hospital staff. 

Above all this, she maintains a great dedication to her family, as is important to all of us at Family Doctors Associates.  We hope you will welcome her into your care as you have welcomed us.
