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.
