  • Health Care in the Family (Medicine) Way

    Eighteen months ago, Cynthia Rodriguez and her husband, Aldo Hernandez, were thrilled to welcome their son Aldo, Jr. into their lives. Like most new parents, they wanted the best care possible for their son. When Aldo, Jr. was just five days old, Rodriguez arrived at the Center for Family Medicine at Eisenhower George and Julia Argyros Health Center in La Quinta for her son’s first newborn wellness checkup. Her chosen physician was Kinder Fayssoux, MD, Board Certified in Family Medicine.

    “I really like Dr. Fayssoux,” says Rodriguez. “She makes it easy to ask any question. And my son really likes her.” click for more

  • Is Joint Pain Affecting Your Life?

    Hip and knee pain are common complaints, especially as we age. Genetics and your medical history play a role in determining whether or not you’ll suffer from joint pain, but habits and lifestyle are also important.

    Learn more about your joint pain — and the factors that may be increasing your risk — with our new online risk profiler.  Just answer several questions about your health history and lifestyle, and in less than 10 minutes you’ll get a personalized risk assessment that you can review with your doctor. Complete this confidential assessment before January 31st and you’ll also be entered into a drawing for a free FitBit activity tracking device. Click here to take the assessment.
