|Are you Protecting Yourself Against UV Rays?|
July is UV safety awareness month. During the sunny summer months and much desired beach time, a lot of emphasis is placed on protecting our skin and eyes from Ultraviolet (UV) rays. Many of us know that overexposure to UV rays from the sun during the summer months can cause severe skin and eye injuries, including sunburn, skin cancer, cataracts, macular degeneration, and growths on our eyes - including cancer. In the continental U.S., the hours between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. are the most hazardous for UV exposure and are at their greatest intensity during the late spring and early summer. Skin screenings can detect melanoma and other skin cancers early. Skin cancer screening exams are the best way to catch melanoma and other skin cancers early, when they're easiest to treat.
Did you know we offer complimentary skin screens every Saturday 9-3?
Skin screenings are available on Saturdays at the following locations:
-PDQ Urgent Care and More Chino Hills
-PDQ Urgent Care and More Yorba Linda
-PDQ Urgent Care and More in Orange
-Caduceus on Thalia in Laguna Beach
Live chat to reserve a Saturday screening and walk-ins are also welcome!
|Long Haul Covid Treatment |
The Omicron BA.5 variant is now the most dominant strain of COVID-19 and more people appear to be contracting the virus multiple times in relatively quick succession. Recent studies suggest that people who get sick multiple times may have a higher risk of long-COVID symptoms. People with long COVID, or “long-haulers,” may experience new, returning, or ongoing health problems four or more weeks after first being infected. Some of these symptoms include shortness of breath, fatigue, headaches, palpitations, and impairments in mental health and cognition. Our Covid treatment team is here to help! Book a visit in-office or by telehealth to discuss your options and to see if you are a good candidate for monoclonal antibody treatment. You can email or call our Covid hotline at 714-984-3076.
