Dear valued patient,

During this time of uncertainty, our team is doing everything possible to ensure that our community stays healthy. We are therefore seeing a limited number of patients and utilizing telemedicine as much as possible. Most of our appointments will be via telephone, except for those patients deemed urgent/emergent or in need of immediate treatment. If you are uncertain about the medical necessity of your situation, please feel free to contact our office for clarity.

In accordance with American College of Surgeons’ recommendations, Cottage Hospital Santa Barbara is only allowing urgent or emergent surgical procedures to be performed. In addition to safeguarding patients, this ensures that limited resources are preserved for those most in need.

If you feel that Dr. Casey needs to see you or if you would like to speak to him via telemedicine, please contact our office at 805.730.1470 or email at We appreciate your patience and understanding, as we are working with a limited staff during these unprecedented times. Your health and safety are our number one priority. As a reminder, if you feel you are in need of immediate assistance, you should report to your nearest Emergency Department. Stay healthy and stay safe.

Very respectfully,

Santa Barbara Vascular Specialists
