How can I have clear skin???
I have been getting this question a lot so this week I will talk about 5 things you can do to get clear skin.
1. Wash your face. This is the first and most important step in your journey to clear skin. You want to wash off excess sebum/oil, makeup, which can clog your pores and lead to acne.
My advice is to use a gentle cleanser on your face. All cleansers are not created equal. Some people believe that a cleanser that strips away all the oil and dirt is the best option. Unfortunately using harsh cleanser are not great for your skin because it takes away all the oil on your skin and your body compensated for this by producing more oil which can then lead to more acne.
I recommend my patients use a gentle cleanser such as @isclinical cleansing complex because you can do a single or double cleanse and not strip your skin of all the natural protective oils.
So washing your face is the first step in attaining clear skin.
If you are in need of a skincare regimen you can dm me for a virtual consultation and we can make recommendations.

I got a message from a patient requesting a #telemedicine visit. Her chief complaint was, I have toxic shock syndrome. I immediately knew she had be consulting Dr Google.
After getting her history I was able to diagnose her with a urinary tract infection and send her prescription to the pharmacy.
Moral of the story, always contact your physician with your concerns instead of Dr Google.

Hi Family, I am now offering telemedicine services. Send me a message and we can get started. Share with anyone that might need medical attention during this lockdown.
Lack of insurance is not a reason to not receive medical care. This is why I practice direct care medicine. I advocate for my patients because no will for them if they don’t have insurance. Dee Fongod
Mayor confirms teenager’s death with heart-breaking statement: ‘The Friday before he died, he was healthy ... By Wednesday, he was dead’
What happens when you wake up in the morning and you are like, “OMG why do I feel like I got hit by an elephant”? You think, I need to see my doctor or go to urgent care. Then you remember you are in the mist of the COVID-19 Pandemic and you can’t go outside.
Thats where #telemedicine comes in handy. Telemedicine is the practice of medicine between a provider and patient using a phone or computer without meeting in person. Currently due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Physicians can practice across state lines which means we can help anyone in the entire country who needs non-urgent medical care. Here are a few things you should have at home besides your phone for the visit.
1. Thermometer. Everyone should have one at home. This checks your body’s temperature and if it is higher than 100.4 then you are considered to have a fever. Currently fever is the most common symptom associated with COVID-19 infection. Having an accurate temperature helps with your providers assessment and treatment plan.
2. Pulse Oximeter. This device measures a patients oxygen saturation and heart rate. Many people may not know this device but currently during the COVID-19 pandemic, I believe this is the most important device to have at home. One of the key symptoms of COVID infection that can lead to severe disease is a decrease in oxygen saturation. Having your oxygen saturation at rest and when you are walking is very helpful in determining disease progression.
3. Blood Pressure Cuff. This is used to measure a persons blood pressure. Typically patients with Hypertension should have this machine at home and should check their blood pressure daily. During a telemedicine visit, obtaining your blood pressure is vital in triaging patients.
4. Glucometer. A glucometer is a device that measures a patient blood sugar levels. This is usually used by diabetic patients. During a telemedicine visit, I usually want to know a patients blood sugar especially if they have a history of diabetes and are presenting with new symptoms that could make the disease worse.
Do you think you need a telemedicine visit? Send me a private message and I can help.
If you need urgent care but cannot go outside due to the COVID19 then we are offering telemedicine to everyone in the USA. Send us a message for more information

As everyone knows by now the COVID-19 pandemic has wrecked havoc on the world. With the current burden on the healthcare system I wanted to help out the people in my community and lessen the burden on the healthcare workers in the hospital right now.
I know a lot of you are stuck at home due to this pandemic but sadly medical needs come up and not everyone has access to a doctor who can treat their condition from home.
I know a lot of people don’t have insurance, don’t have an established doctor or have insurance with very high premiums etc. Maybe you just don’t want to go to urgent care and be turned away. I can help.
I will be offering Telemedicine services for patients age 18 and above. I can help patients ACROSS THE USA.
Please email me at [email protected] with your name, number and state your chief complaint. I will call people as the emails trickle in.

Did you know that in Europe doctors can prescribe being outside in nature as a legitimate prescription? They are definitely on to something because studies show that being outside in nature can help improve #anxiety and #depression and generally puts you in a good mood. So let’s take advantage of the nice weather this weekend, increase our #endorphins and let #mothernature heal us. ~ Dr D

Hello Delight Family, I have been thinking a lot about what this medical practice means to me. So I am going to share my thoughts with you all.
I wanted to have a medical practice where the focus was the patient. I see patients who have no insurance, have high deductibles or have good insurance. My goal is to give my best to my patients. I particularly enjoy working with the uninsured population. I have a deep respect for them because I have had a chance to learn so much from these people. Sometimes uninsured folks are seen as a burden to the system but a lot of people do not take time to get a deeper understanding of why these people are not insured. Some people cannot afford insurance and are not well informed about the resources available to them. Some people can afford insurance but just don't understand our current insurance model (Heck I don't blame them... I barely understand it). I grew up in a country where going to the doctor was simple. You saw the doctor for a check up, paid for labs and medications and went home. If you got too sick you were admitted to the hospital. A lot of immigrants have similar systems so the idea of insurance doesn't always make sense.
I want to focus on treating the uninsured, the under-insured and everyone else who wants to have a personal relationship with your doctor. I do not work insurance!

Dr. D (Delight Primary Care) is in the house, with a special somebody 😩🎀
you absolutely do not want to miss this episode. 🔥
This was shared in a physician group about a patient. It saddens me that people cannot choose a doctor they want to see. Now insurance companies dictate who you see and can even threaten you by not paying for medications and labs....
This Is one of the reasons why I choose not to work with insurance companies. They really do not care about people as individuals. All they care about is the dollar 💵.
If you have no medical insurance and will like to have a primary care physician Delight Primary Care is for you.
If you have insurance which is a PPO you can see the doctors at Delight Primary Care.
If you have an HMO plan, unfortunately you will have to check with your insurance company to see if you can see a doctor out of network.
If you have an HSA account, you can use it to pay for Delight Primary Care fees. However this will need to be rectified with your accountant/CPA for tax purposes.
Visit us at Delightprimarycare.com for more information.
Lastly we have few spots left for the free adult physicals so call us at 703-879-4729
The FDA has currently recalled Valsartan due to contamination from its suppliers. If you are currently take Valsartan ( for high blood pressure) check with your pharmacist to make sure your medicine isn't from the recalled batch
cnn.com The US Food and Drug Administration expanded the list of recalled valsartan products. The drug is used as a component in drugs that treat heart failure and blood pressure.
Food for thought 💭 Health is wealth.
A little Tuesday humor. This may be the norm in most doctors offices but at Delight we don’t keep you waiting 😃
