Casa de Salud Gives Back!

We love supporting our dear friends at St Patrick's Catholic Church with their efforts for better health, so on Sunday August 21st, 2016 Casa de Salud provided free health screenings to all of its members in Los Angeles.

We believe prevention is the best way to avoid serious illness so make sure you're getting your annual check ups and following the advice of your doctor. Case de Salud can help you with all of your medical and dental needs!

Special thanks to Maverick Medical Group, LA Care, and Golden Outlook Insurance Services for supporting our efforts.
