Be the Next Patient Seen!

Written by admin | 12 July, 2015

Patients now have the option to pre-register by completing paperwork available anywhere they can access the world wide web! And in the near future patients will be able to complete this process electronically and even make themselves an appointment on the schedule.

Patients who complete the pre-registration process will be fast tracked upon arrival and be the next patient seen (excluding any trauma or emergency situations).

If you would like to be fast tracked please download and complete the registration form on-line or soon you will be able to complete electronically.

Water & Dehydration

Written by admin | 18 June, 2015

During those hot summer days, it is important to remember to hydrate often.Your body is made up of about 45%-75% water, depending on how much fat you have; therefore, water should be part of your daily routine.Lack of water can cause dehydration which can lead to thirst, dry skin, loss of appetite, fatigue/weakness, and much more1. The recommended amount of water needed by CNN Health is a little more than 8 cups2, though for men and women it varies a bit. According to the Institute of Medicine, men need roughly 13 cups and women need about 9 cups3.

In order to achieve the daily recommend water intake amount, try to:

Ø Drink a glass of water before meals, during meals, and in between meals.

Ø Drink a glass of water before exercising, during exercising, and after exercising.

Just drinking water with each meal, if you eat 3 meals on average, would account for 9 cups a day!Make sure you are drinking enough water, especially during those hot summer days!

Conversion between ounces, cups, quarts and gallons:

1 cup = 8 ounces

1 quart = 32 ounces = 4 cups

1 gallon = 4 quarts = 128 ounces = 16 cups
