Let the Sun Shine!

If you are like me, you could use a bit of sunshine. The rain, the wind, and the gray skies can have an affect on your mood in addition to your health. It’s been shown that changes in barometric pressure and other weather changes can affect mood, migraines, arthritis, sleeping patterns, and affect other body systems. That being said, it has been good to see the sun out again this week but I like it when it stays! Now is the time for some spring-cleaning for your health (see my tips for this month). Make plans for your summer vacation and consider weekend getaways that offer an opportunity for leisure exercise activity, and rest and relaxation. Make time for family and reconnect with friends and family.

Spring Cleaning Health Tips

Are you on Drugs?

If you are taking any medications (both prescription and nonprescription), you should know what they are for, how much you are taking, how they are supposed to work, and what side-effects can occur. All of these factors are important. Carry a list with you including the name, dose, and times taken per day. Also, avoid running out of your medications. Contact us if you have any concerns about your medications. Your medications work best when taken correctly, and for the right reasons!

Patient Satisfaction is Our Mission

Helping you improve your health and treating you when you are sick is a priority for us. But, we want to do this in the best possible way with providing high quality service and satisfaction. If for any reason you feel that we could improve our service for you and increase your patient satisfaction, let us know. We participate in random surveys that provide you an opportunity to rate us on our service. We want you to feel comfortable in giving us your highest score!

Know Your Numbers!

If you have high blood pressure, diabetes, elevated blood cholesterol levels or struggle with obesity or any other major health condition with disease measurements, then you need to know your numbers and what you can do to improve them.
