Pedro first came to OLE Health in 2020 after losing a job with a vineyard he’d been with for 17 years. When he lost his job, he also lost his medical insurance. As a diabetic with high blood pressure, forgoing medical care was not an option.
Pedro was able to find another job but didn’t receive insurance through his new employer. Eventually, the financial stress and worry about taking care of his family and paying his mortgage began to take a toll.
In 2021, at age 46, Pedro had a stroke.
Joan has been a patient of OLE Health since 2003. Around that time, she had been diagnosed with an underactive thyroid, which was affecting her energy level and metabolism. She needed to establish care with a provider to manage the condition. While OLE Health focuses on preventative care, many of our patient have complex health needs or manage chronic conditions. As a patient-centered medical home, each patient is assigned a primary care provider and works with an integrated care team to ensure they have access to services they need in a way they can understand them. For patients managing chronic conditions, this can make a huge difference. For Joan, it’s the staff at OLE Health that makes the difference. “My
To say I generally don’t trust doctors would be an understatement but I trust my doctor at OLE Health. How could I not when she saved my life? Last summer I was feeling sick frequently but was panicked to wake up one day to terrifying symptoms. My legs were completely swollen to the point that I didn’t even recognize them anymore and I knew something was very wrong. I scrambled to try and get an appointment or be seen that day at OLE. A call center employee told me to just show up and my doctor would make time to see me. Frightened and not sure if I would simply be turned away, I showed up to wait for my
Imagine feeling ill for several years and having no answer for your frustrating symptoms even after countless medical tests were performed. In 2012, that was the disheartening situation I found myself in. Desperate to discover what was wrong and finally get some relief is what brought me to OLE Health. OLE connected me to my primary care doctor who I still see today. After ordering an MRI, my provider diagnosed my MS (Multiple Sclerosis), the first step in my treatment. I am happy to share that I am currently receiving treatment for my MS at an excellent medical center that OLE Health referred me to and continue my primary care at OLE. After years of living with pain, I am
If it weren’t for OLE Health, I probably would not be here today. I came in three years ago concerned about my high blood pressure and my OLE doctor referred me to a cardiologist at Queen of the Valley Medical Center. Until I came to OLE Health, I never ever had my doctor call me at home to follow up with me. I know they care about me at OLE. My doctor’s attention to me doesn’t just end with my appointment. She did an excellent job of not only following up with me, but also connecting me to my cardiologist and the services at The Queen. I don’t think my doctor at OLE has ever met my cardiologist, but she
After having a very negative and frustrating experience at another dental practice, I was hopeful that I would receive great care from OLE Health’s Dental Team just as I have with their medical providers. I went to their Fairfield location for the first time for this appointment and was impressed with not only the facility, but also their excellent customer service. From the check-in to the checkout, I was treated warmly. Dr. Kucsera and the dental team at OLE Health are outstanding. I could tell the equipment in the dental space was new and top of the line and I left feeling confident in the care I received. Thank you OLE Health for another great experience. I have been recommending
