The office is getting a lot of calls regarding air quality as the winds have shifted and our area is getting more ash and smoke. For children and teens without previous lung issues, try to stay indoors as much as possible, keep your windows and doors closed and minimize outdoor activities. For children and teens with a history of asthma or any chronic lung condition, do all of the above and consider using your preventive controller inhaler if your doctor has prescribed one for you in the past.  You can follow the air quality at airnow.gov. Just type your zip code into the box at the top of the screen and look at the "forecast".   Here is a more local source for air quality data. For those with asthma or chronic lung conditions, remember to use those controller preventive inhalers!!!  http://www.baaqmd.gov/

Starting in October, our practice will be transitioning to a new EHR (electronic health record). During this transition, you may have to wait a little longer than usual to get checked in, and we will be asking you to fill out some forms that you may have already signed in our previous system. We know this is an inconvenience and annoyance, and we apologize in advance. This new EMR is a great upgrade for our practice and will ultimately help us in providing the best care and communication to our families, but it may take a few months to get everything running smoothly. Thanks for your understanding and let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
