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.
MVHC hosted a Homeless Outreach on October 8. 2016 in Burney. We were able to provide meals, showers, health screening, flu shots, blood draws, clothing, blankets, boots and shoes and care for a number of our local homeless population. Our staff was joined by a number of partners, including Mayers Memorial Hospital, Lassen County Public Health, The Pit River Casino, Burney Fabricare, Hill Country Clinic’s Circle of Friends as well as generous donations from community members and the MVHC staff. Our staff was impressed by the gratefulness and humility of those that we were able to help.
