Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 3, 2006
Dr. Nissan Kahen announced recently the launch of a newly redesigned website for South Atlantic Medical Group (SAMG). Dr. Nissan Kahen is medical director for SAMG, a leading medical group in Los Angeles that provides primary, preventive, diagnostic and acute/urgent patient care. SAMG also provides direct and referral access to a wide range of medical specialists for the whole family, including Medicare and Medi-Cal (Medicaid in CA) beneficiaries and persons seeking immigration medical examinations. Located at http://www.samg.org, the website features clinic locations, services offered, news updates, suggested health and medical Internet resources and information on the SAMG founding physician, Nissan Kahen, MD.
Dr. Nissan Kahen started providing health and medical care to his patients through South Atlantic Medical Group (SAMG) in the heart of East Los Angeles in 1984. Paul Parviz Kahen, Dr. Kahen’s brother, assumed Administrator duties for SAMG shortly thereafter. In 1990, they began to expand SAMG facilities and by 1991 SAMG comprised a total of five medical centers throughout Los Angeles County. Their goal was to open medical centers in areas that include underserved patients who needed a welcoming physician with supportive staff that understand fully the health and medical needs of patients.
After starting his private practice, Dr. Nissan Kahen saw the need for a community oriented medical practice that served the special needs of his patients and that provided a solid, challenging practice environment for fellow physicians. Paul Parviz Kahen had concerns about the administrative “red tape” and unnecessary delays that inhibited patients in receiving timely medical care and services, particularly as a result of the fee-for-service programs and reimbursement systems. They believed that health insurers and payors should provide their beneficiaries with better, appropriate and efficient health insurance options, including preventive care, prescription drug coverage and transportation assistance.
In 2004, Dr. Kahen and Paul Parviz Kahen began planning and development of a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) to promote innovation and delivery system improvements to provide quality and appropriate health and medical care in a financially challenging environment. Paul Parviz Kahen now devotes his full administrative and management time to the HMO.
The samg.org website allows users to access SAMG news and updates as well as medical and healthcare news summaries. "We have primary family care clinics in five convenient locations to serve patients quickly and efficiently" says Dr. Kahen. "The website is designed to provide a professional image, useful healthcare and medical information and easy navigation." The SAMG staff includes clinic physicians, nursing personnel, medical technicians and office support personnel. SAMG's primary care clinics are located throughout Los Angeles in the areas of Commerce, Huntington Park, El Monte, Bell Gardens and Gardena. SAMG also has a solid network of medical specialists for on-site and community referral services.
