Summer is officially here with hot days ahead!
Dr. Alvarez advices you check the forecast and plan ahead. If you have a lung condition, an autoimmune disease, allergies or neuropathic symptoms, being out in the heat ( even just to and from your car ) can be a major flare trigger. Plan your errands around daily temperatures. You might check the air quality index at the airnow.gov website.
This summer, we will offer early morning or evening appointments upon request. If you are due for a medication check in or refill or your annual exam , don’t let the weather keep you from scheduling. Give us a call or send a portal appointment request and we will do our best to accommodate you.
The office will be CLOSED Friday 12/8/17 and Thursday 12/21/17- Monday 12/25/17. There will be some modification of hours the rest of the year. Please contact our office if you do not see your scheduling needs on the portal and we will try to accommodate you.
Please make arrangements in advance for medication refills and getting your follow up appointments scheduled. Thank you for using the Portal for scheduling and do contact your pharmacy for any refills.
As always, any closures for winter weather will most often follow the PPS closure or late opening for that day.
Have a safe and healthy holiday season !
