Welcome to Prison Talk. I hope you get answers from folks who know. Here's a link to the website of the California Correctional Health Care Services (CCHCS).
https://cchcs.ca.gov/

and the CDCR Ombudsman for "How can the Office of the Ombudsman help me with Medical Issues?"
https://www.cdcr.ca.gov/ombuds/ombuds/health/

For either agency to discuss the prisoner's medical conditions requires him to make the inquiries himself, or to submit a HIPAA authorization allowing them to disclose his medical issues with you.

STATE OF CALIFORNIA
AUTHORIZATION FOR RELEASE OF PROTECTED HEALTH INFORMATION
CDCR 7385 (Rev. 11/14)

Mostly it is up to your LO to bring attention. CDCR Form 7362 is used by inmates to request medical / health care. If he has a medical issue I assume he has been submitting those on more than one occasion and not receiving satisfactory medical care?

If so, his next course is to submit a 602HC Health Care Grievance form. That will go to the prison Health Care CEO. It sucks but CEO's will take their sweet time responding. They will either agree and order the Doctor to do something else or they will do nothing and say that your LO is getting great health care. Then he can submit another 602HC to Sacramento. They will also take their sweet time and respond like prison Health Care CEO with a yes or no.

If he hasn't gone through that, he should. Meantime from your POV I think fbopnomore outlined what you can / need to do.
