News Flash

With so much information available today, we wanted to share important news regarding your health and wellness in a simple, snapshot format. Here is the latest:

CDC Recommends Face Coverings While In Public

Late last week, the Centers For Disease Control recommended that people use face coverings while in public settings. This is in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19 by those that are ill or asymptomatic. Please follow these guidelines for how to effectively use a face covering; the recommendations specify disposable masks, but if you opt for a cloth covering, the best precaution is to wash the covering after use, and to avoid touching the covering (along with maintaining hand hygiene and frequent cleaning of high traffic areas).

If you would like to purchase handmade cloth masks, Courtney Medical Group has them available for sale for $8 each.

Please call our office (520-797-8555) or email (courtneymedicalgroup@comcast.net) for more information.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Guidlines- Updated

It’s possible that face protection may be required when leaving the house to protect from those that may be asymptomatic of the COVID-19 virus. While this is controversial and may help protect from those unaware they are infected, there are pros and cons to both sides. In the event the recommendation is made to wear face coverings, we wanted to stress how to safely use them. Please follow these guidelines for how to effectively use a face covering; the recommendations specify disposable masks, but if you opt for a cloth covering, the best precaution is to wash the covering after use, and to avoid touching the covering (along with maintaining hand hygiene and frequent cleaning of high traffic areas).

If the recommendation is made, please don’t rush to buy surgical masks so desperately needed by your healthcare providers on the front line. A scarf or other homemade device will give the basic protection this rule is trying to provide.

The World Health Organization has also shared other helpful resources (including a myth busters section) to provide accurate information about COVID-19 as we navigate these uncertain times.

Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Guidlines

News surrounding Covid-19, also known as coronavirus, is circulating at a rapid pace and can make it difficult to feel adequately informed about the topic and what precautions to take.

-Establish hand hygiene. Most illnesses are transmitted by people touching contaminated surfaces (door handles, keyboards, pin pads, etc), then touching their faces. Routinely washing hands and avoiding touching your face can reduce the chances of illness significantly.

-Avoid being around those that are sick, and stay home if you yourself are ill. It can’t be stressed enough the importance of avoiding group settings when ill- not to mention that anybody that is under the weather will benefit from resting at home.

-There is no evidence that wearing masks will protect people from getting sick. The CDC does not recommend that people use face masks, as this can create a false sense of security and actually increase how often people touch their faces. The face masks that may protect against coronavirus, N95 respirators, require annual fit testing to be considered effective, and are used by those in professions that may expose them to harmful chemicals, dusts, fumes, etc., not daily use by the general public. Officials are strongly recommending people do not stockpile face masks of any sort as that may cause a shortage for those in professions that require them, or individuals who otherwise need them.

Ask Your Provider About Daily Aspirin

New research shows that healthy people who don’t have known heart disease or stroke should speak to their provider before starting a daily aspirin regimen. Evidence highlights that the risk of internal bleeding and other side effects offset potential benefits for those considered to be at low or moderate risk for heart disease. Please speak to your provider before starting (or stopping!) any medication. Read more about the recommendations from the American Heart Association here.

What’s New at Our Practice

Schedule Your 2020 Annual Physical Today!

Most insurance companies cover an annual physical with no cost to the patient.

An annual physical exam is a visit focused on preventative care, immunizations, healthy lifestyle discussion, and coordinating care and referrals. Please keep in mind your annual physical is not part of your office follow-up appointments. An office visit, sick visit, or medication check appointment is a time to discuss and evaluate new and existing medical conditions.

You can call us (520-797-8555), Monday-Friday 8a-5p or contact us here. We look forward to helping you coordinate your annual physical appointment to ensure you start the new year off on a healthy note!

I have never met a doctor or person in the medical field that has impressed me as much as Dr. Courtney. At first I thought she was a bit brusk and dismissive, but as I continued appreciating her expertise in my examination, I discovered that her demeanor was better described as efficient, thorough and deliberately extensive. I became a huge fan because of her ability to immediately address every concern of mine, assess causes and related conditions that I was unaware of and to an extensive follow through on each and every detail. She has been so complete in her interviews and referrals that I have literally found her to be responsible for possibly saving my life by determining that I may have lung cancer, which I do, and that finding out this early has given me a greater chance for survival. When all the assessment was done during our last encounter she took the time to talk to me on a more personal level and came across as one the most caring and emotionally supportive individuals I have ever encountered. I read some of the other reviews and it quickly became obvious to me that any negative reviews were most likely from individuals attempting to cast her in an inappropriate negative light, rejected patients that I can only conclude were weeded out due to their drug seeking, not for legitimate medical reasons. She is brilliant, she is kind and she is not going to waste valuable time on false premises presented by disingenuous claims. She is too smart for that. I can’t praise her enough, thank you Susan from the bottom of my heart.

Thank You, From The Bottom of My Heart!

We have been seeing Dr. Courtney and staff for over a decade, she is a very caring and concerned about our health. I know she may come across as terse to some people because of her ‘Just the facts’ questioning so she can get to a root of the medical issue and a correct diagnosis.
I totally trust Dr. Courtney and her staff and would definitely recommend her practice to friends and family and everyone.
