Mountain Valleys Health Centers provided free health screenings for homeless individuals in the Burney area on Saturday, August 12th. Staff of the Burney Health Center donated items and participated in passing out free clothing and blankets. The event ran from 9:00 AM-1:00 PM. Mountain Valleys has worked hard to build bridges with the homeless community over the last several years and this event is just one of the avenues. The goal of the outreach is to help serve a population in the community that can often feel displaced. Mountain Valleys wants to improve the relationship with the population in hopes of better identifying their health needs, and assisting them in achieving their optimum health. Below are pictures of staff who worked at the event. For more good news and to stay connected, you can follow along on our Facebook page.

It has been a pleasure working with my patients at Mountain Valleys Health Centers.  I have enjoyed my time here with you all and thought I would offer some tips to continuing your care after my absence. 

If you are looking for prescription refills, remember it is necessary to establish care with a new provider.  For those patients who are taking chronic narcotic prescriptions please have patience.  These medications are in a special class and many providers are not comfortable prescribing these medications.  On top of this the DEA has challenged family practice providers with new regulations and guidelines requiring reassessment of each patients need for therapy.  These new stipulations are to protect you the patient from inadvertent overdose and death.

If you have outstanding orders, these will be followed up by other MVHC Providers.  Remember if you do not hear back on a test that was completed, be sure to give our office a call. 

Thank you for choosing me to be your family practice physician, I wish you all the best. 

Kind regards,

Dr. Barrios
