August 30, 2019 – In an historic first, we will be changing our website banner a wee bit early.
Fall doesn’t come until September 23rd but announcements have been piling up.
Also, the weather has been a little cooler (I know – I am sure we’ll be in the 90s by the time this posts) and college football begins a full schedule this weekend so here we go…
1-Dr. Carr Retires
This one will take some time to absorb and appreciate the significance of a career that spanned 40 continuous years at RCAM.
Dr. Carr would like me to keep this brief. May I refer you to the article below for (a few) more details.
2-Nurse Chessica Had Her Baby
Some of you have been following the pregnancy of Chessica – one of our nurses at our Duraleigh office whose name rhymes with Jessica.
She and her husband welcomed Baby Boy Parrish just a few days ago. He weighed 7 pounds 7 ounces.
They feel very blessica-ed. 😀
3-Pediatrician Formerly Known As Emily Ross, MD: Now Known As Emily Mims, MD
With Dr. Carr retiring and Emily now Dr. Mims, it is taking some time to update letterhead, name tags, door placards,etc…. but don’t let that confuse you when you see or hear Dr. Mims’ name.
4-Labor Day Holiday
REMINDER: It’s Labor Day weekend. As usual, we will be around.
5-Flu Vaccine 2019-2020
It wouldn’t be a Fall Banner change without mentioning Influenza (“Flu”) Vaccine.
Our supply won’t arrive before October (though it appears the pharmacies already have their supply). October and November are typically good months to get your flu vaccine. Injectible flu vaccine lasts about 6 months. If you get your flu vaccine in October, it should last through March – which is good because that is typically a busy month for flu. Stay tuned though as there have been some reports of early flu activity.
