Supervisor Todd Spitzer spoke at the Grand Opening of the UC Irvine Health Medical Group Tustin primary care offices. During his remarks, Supervisor Spitzer shared his experience as a patient of UC Irvine Health and UC Irvine Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center when he was treated for vocal cord cancer and commended UC Irvine Health for the excellent caliber of services that they provide.
In addition to the Tustin location, UC Irvine Health is also opening a new state-of-the-art primary care center in the City of Orange. Between the two new locations, thirteen physicians with long-standing ties to the community will provide convenient and comprehensive primary care. Both locations will feature family and internal medicine plus laboratory services for fast turnaround of tests. The Tustin center will offer pediatrics and rheumatology, plus urgent care and imaging services such as x-ray and ultrasound. Numerous specialists, including physicians in dermatology, cardiology, obstetrics and gynecology, endocrinology and gastroenterology, will join the center in early 2015.
The centers will also embrace new technology, with plans to roll out the use of Google Glass in early 2015 to assist physicians and staff to seamlessly integrate patient visits with their electronic medical records.
The Tustin center is located at 1451 Irvine Blvd. Primary care office hours are 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Urgent care services are offered 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM, Monday through Friday, and 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on weekends and holidays. The Orange office at 293 S. Main Street, Suite 200 is open Monday through Friday with the hours of 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
