New Patient?

We are open for fasting blood work visits, physicals, injuries, chest pain, headaches, urinary tract infections, etc. We are NOT seeing sick patients at this time in an effort to limit any potential exposure to the coronavirus. 

The offices are wiped down regularly with disinfectants and we are practicing safety measures for our staff and our patients. We understand this is a scary time, but we encourage you to come in for your appointment or if you need to be seen. We're here to service our community in a safe space.

We ARE offering telehealth visits for anyone who may have any symptoms consistent with the corona virus or can't make it into the office. You can speak to a doctor on the phone or via video chat and have your symptoms assessed. We thank you for your patience and your cooperation.

Allergies Getting To You? 

If you suffer from itchy, burning eyes, scratchy throat or difficulty breathing, talk to your doctor about what you can do to fight allergy symptoms. 

The Latest:

The Coronavirus or COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment.

There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

Shingrix Vaccine

Have you heard about the new vaccine for the shingles virus? It's called Shingrix. 

The CDC is recommending anyone 50 and above receive this vaccine even if they've already received Zostavax. 

Shingrix is said to be 91% effective against the shingles virus and in some patients it has shown to be 97% effective. 

This vaccine is given in 2 shots; you receive the first one and then the second one 2-6 months from the first one. 

Medicare will not allow us to give this vaccine in our offices but we can give you a prescription to bring to the pharmacy. Commercial insurances are paying for it in the offices. 

Talk to your doctor about Shingrix & protect yourself against shingles today! 

The Coronavirus 

Flu shots are available! We have both high dose and regular available. Please do not get your flu shot at your pharmacy. Get your flu shot with us, your doctor so that we can keep records of all the vaccines you've received.

No appointment is necessary. 

If you haven't scheduled your annual physical yet this year or need to reschedule your appointment, please call our offices as soon as possible. We schedule at least 3 months in advance and appointments book up quickly. In order to get the day and time that you need, call us to schedule your physical. 

**If your schedule permits, you may want to consider an afternoon appointment. You can have a light breakfast & no lunch & can have plenty of water throughout the day.** 

Are You Up To Date On Your Vaccines?

Have you received all your necessary vaccines? If you aren't up to date, we can provide you with a variety of vaccines to protect you against some very serious viruses/diseases.
