Welcome

 

July is here and it is hot!
Here are some great tips for staying cool during these summer months. 

 
  1. Avoid Alcohol and Know Your Prescriptions: Sitting poolside in Phoenix is always fun with a cocktail in hand, but remember that when alcohol enters the blood stream it causes dehydration.  Also, it’s important to remember that dehydration is a side effect of many common prescription drugs for seniors such as blood thinners, diuretics, and antihistamines.
  1. Don’t use the Stove or Oven: Most homes in Phoenix have an excellent air conditioning system.  During the summer months your air conditioner probably runs all day long.  However, when we cook in the stove or oven it heats the surrounding environment, regardless if the air condition is on.  Try to eat more salads, raw foods, or even microwaved foods, in order to avoid overheating your home.
  1. Wear Sunscreen SPF-30 or Higher: This seems obvious but you would be surprised how many people have SPF-15 in their drawer at home. Sunburns last longer than heat exhaustion because they physically alter your body for an extended period of time and can easily result in a heat stroke, especially when located in areas around the head and neck.   Be sure to wear higher SPF sunscreen and reapply often.
  1. Park Your Car Inside: Whether you live a condo or house, during the summer months in Phoenix you should avoid parking your car outside. Try and park in a garage, or at the very least, under a shaded area.  Heat strokes can occur among the elderly in a matter of minutes. We also recommend running the air conditioning for at least 5 minutes while the car is in park, and before you steer out on the hot black asphalt.
  1. Watch Your Diet: Food with heavy salt levels such as nuts, processed foods, pretzels, and tortilla chips, can increase the chance of dehydration.  Stay away from salty foods during the hot summer months. Also, try and eat lighter and healthier, in general.  Being overfull and exhausted from food is a bad combination with 110 degree heat.

Insurance Change Policy for Physicals

To Our Patients,

Due to the many policy changes in insurance plans, including Obamacare/Market Place Plans, effective 01/01/2016, diagnostic testing (EKG, Treadmill, DEXA, etc.) is not indicated by your insurance as preventive care or part of your annual physical examination. That also means diagnostic testing may be subject to your copay, deductible or coinsurance. While insurances have improved in the coverage of annual preventative care, they no longer consider any testing as preventive care.

Dr. Jasser, Dr. Lee, and Stephanie are committed to giving you the best medical care possible and will continue to do so, despite these changes. Please note, our providers will not change their current standard recommendations for you to have your necessary cardiac testing, bone density screening, or any testing for other chronic medical conditions that are necessary for your healthcare.
