Changes at the Center
Changes at the USC Westside Center for Diabetes
Our clinic has moved one floor down in the same building to provide more space for patients and staff. The move to Suite 300 on the third floor of our 9033 Wilshire Blvd. building provides an improved environment for patients and staff with bigger waiting and exam rooms and more space for the very important front and back-office staff to work. This will support more organization and efficiency, with the goal of improving your care. The medical staff gets less space than ever, but we are meant to spend more time with patients and less time sitting still.
Our primary care services are also changing. Patients of Sharon Orrange, MD have already received a letter of notification that she will be moving over to providing services through Keck Signature Care, the concierge medicine program of Keck Medicine of USC. The Signature care program has a limited enrolment that will provide a more personal relationship and easier access to care. The program is available for an annual fee of $6,000 and the program is open to participants with PPO or Medicare health insurance.
For those who want to continue their primary care in our office, Preiyaa B. Gopinath, MD will be joining to providing internal medicine services in the office and through telemedicine. She will be joining our current nurse practitioner Donna Miller, MSN, FNP-C, CDCES, physician assistant Ashley Matatiaho, PA, general endocrinology and diabetes care provider Dina Block, MD, our diabetes educator Mary Rose Deraco, RN, BSN, CDCES and our nutritionist Meg Werner Moreta, MS, RD, CDCES.
