Heart Health

We’re proud to be part of the “Heart Health Now!” initiative led by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to help primary care practices improve the heart health of millions of Americans. Listen in at 7:00 a.m. Friday mornings throughout the summer.


Summer weeds such as ragweed, air pollution, molds, bees, wasps, yellow jackets, hornets, fire ants, and other insects that sting, can all cause allergic reactions. If over the counter antihistamines are not helping your allergies, call our office to schedule a visit.

Arthritis Care

If non-prescription strength pain relievers are no longer managing your joint pain, it may be time to explore other options. These include prescription pain relievers or prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), immunosuppressants, physical therapy, and possibly surgery. Call our office to schedule an appointment.
