PRACTICE HEALTH ALERT
Now a few health coaching points: Checking in with you to let you know that during the Shelter-in-Place rule, I am available by cell phone at 707 592-0335 for medical questions preferably from 9 AM until 4 PM to accommodate prescription needs and pharmacy hours. Call after hours if urgent.
Be sure to follow the up-to-date, reliable Public Health recommendations and restrictions, especially the 6 feet or more distancing. Many are still standing in long lines closer together.
Call me specifically for breast and pelvic health issues, pain, bleeding, vaginitis, UTI symptoms, etc. as before. Do not go to the ER for these symptoms unless they are dire and for some reason, you cannot reach me.
Review all of your medications. Order your prescription refills at least a week or more in advance and try not to run out. As usual, call your pharmacy first and they will contact me.
It has never been more important to make healthy choices, especially in nutrition, exercise, stress management and cessation of smoking, vaping, excessive alcohol, etc.
Though we are apart, we are not alone. Stay in your family, friend, small group and large group circles by phone and social media.
Attend faith services on-line. Pray for God’s strength as you encourage yourself and help and encourage others.
Call me if I can help further. My staff and I are eager to resume normal office hours and direct care as soon as feasible. Our office will prepare for the safest environment possible on return.
May God bless you and yours in this special time. Sincerely and stay well.

With all the concern regarding the Corona COVID-19 virus, many are asking…
Here is a summary of our best current research, logic and experience from the past:
- Follow the up-to-date recommendations from your most trusted sources, CDC, Napa County Public Health, etc.
- Stay focused on you and your family’s health in general and specifically to your age, preexisting conditions, risk factors and vaccine status.
- Grow your coping skills, mental hygiene and faith through relaxation, meditation and prayer as you in turn, encourage others.
- Continue with your women’s health check-ups and follow-ups as planned.
Given our practice style and schedule, the office is never crowded with staff or other patients. We pay particular attention to all sterilization, sanitation, hygiene and distance precautions to provide your safest visit possible. Feel free to call with any questions or concerns regarding our best effort to care for you during this challenging and special time.
Thank you for your trust in our practice and To your health!
