What to Expect When Visiting the UCLA Endocrine Center

Message from the Director to our patients:

Michael Yeh
Michael Yeh, Director, UCLA Endocrine Center

I am happy to share that as of May 11th, 2020, UCLA Health is open for all medically necessary procedures and surgery. The UCLA Endocrine Center is open for in-person visits, telemedicine visits, and thyroid biopsies (also known as thyroid fine needle aspirations). Our priority is your safety. Accordingly, we have made a number of changes to our clinic environment and processes:

  1. When you call to make an appointment, you will be asked a series of screening questions for symptoms of COVID-19.
  2. When you come to our office, please wear a mask. If you do not have a mask, you will be offered one.
  3. When you enter the building, you will be greeted by a screener who will take your temperature.
  4. Our waiting room seats have been rearranged to allow physical distancing.
  5. Whenever possible, patients will undergo registration in a private exam room without the need to sit in the waiting room.
  6. Use of hand sanitizer during your visit is recommended.  Hand sanitizer is available from multiple dispensers within the clinic.

During this time, many patients have opted to have telemedicine visits. We have greatly expanded our use of telemedicine, and are happy to continue offering this option to our patients. Conditions related to the coronavirus pandemic are rapidly evolving.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time. If you have specific questions, please feel free to contact our office at 310-267-7838.
