May is Asthma and Allergy month

2018-05-01T12:25:22+00:00

May is Asthma and Allergy month.  So what better time to discuss and learn more.  How easily this can be forgotten in the winter and middle of the summer in the desert southwest.  But oh, the beautiful spring and fall.  How bad can it be? “If you are allergic to a thing, it is best not to put that thing in your mouth, particularly if the thing is a cat”.

Low Vision

2018-04-11T06:30:26+00:00

O loss of sight, of thee I most complain! Blind among enemies, O worse than chains, dungeon or beggary, or decrepit age! - - John Milton Our vision is precious to us, yet it is something that we often take for granted. Our ability to get up in the morning, take care of ourselves and go about navigating our daily routines is something to which we rarely give a second thought. In my practice as [...]

Colon Cancer Awareness

2018-03-19T07:28:03+00:00

March is Colon Cancer Awareness month.  Why the need for “awareness”?  Because colon cancer is a serious disease that has few warning signs at early, easily treated stages, and requires procedures for identification.  Colon cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death.  But what is colon cancer.  Obviously, it involves the colon, in particular the large intestine and the rectum.  Cancer occurs when the DNA of cells develop errors and replicate abnormally [...]

Ear Wax- it happens

2018-02-26T16:26:03+00:00

I am pretty certain that every adult human being has, at one time or another, wondered what is up with ear wax, also called cerumen. We all produce it. It can be excessive, irritating, interesting or even deafening. Wax production and make up changes depending on age as well as ones nationality. Today I would like to take a minute to talk about ear wax. The ear canal is made up of two sections, [...]

Cold or Flu?

2018-02-20T16:35:20+00:00

There is a lot of confusion over knowing whether you have the flu or cold and how they are treated. There is even the possibility that the condition is sinusitis.  Urgent Specialists can help evaluation your situation. When there is a condition of sinusitis the symptom onset is progressive. There is almost never a fever. Aches and chills are unusual, but fatigue and weakness can happen.  Sneezing is rare, but a stuffy nose and sore throat are frequently [...]

Winter is here and so are allergies

2017-11-30T09:01:04+00:00

Stuffy nose, itchy and or watery eyes, runny nose, all this sounds like a winter cold but there is a chance that it is actually allergies. All too often people only associate allergies with summer because of the obvious flowers and trees blooming and the constant media coverage of pollen in the air. As winter falls upon us we are faced with a different set of irritants… With the cold, people tend to spend [...]

Not all Flu Shots are the same

2017-10-13T09:16:19+00:00

To many people’s surprise not all flu vaccines are alike and have a huge variance on how they are created and what they treat. Right now in mainstream America there are about 8 flu shots to choose from. We have done our research and selected the new FLUCELVAX QUADRIVALENT FLU SHOT to administer this year. Let me explain why. As the prefix (“quad”) in the name indicates, it [...]
