On Saturday September 12, 2015, the Complete Care Medicine office staff took part in the Power Metabolic Dodgeball Tournament.
We enjoyed dressing slightly ‘gangster’ as our team name was ‘Straight Outta Gilbert – CCMpton’.
Look at Dr Michael Herrera charge down the court! Our team played very well together and stayed in character the whole time.
We played to support the Powell Metabolic Program as they partner with healthcare professionals to reverse the obesity epidemic in American communities. We had a fun experience and ended up victorious!
Complete Care Medicine was the final CHAMPIONS!
Obesity is affecting individuals and families throughout the United States. Powell Metabolic is doing great things for Gilbert residents and we look forward to participating in other events with them. Learn more about the program here http://powellmetabolics.com/.
Complete Care Medicine COVID-19 Coronavirus Information Page
Please note that currently, we are unable to perform COVID-19 Coronavirus testing in office as testing kits are in short supply all over the country and we are having difficulty obtaining these kits. Additionally, we are not currently equipped with the necessary personal protective gear required to protect our staff that may become exposed if we were to perform this testing due to the shortages created by non-healthcare personal. We hope to be able to have the capability to do more testing within the next 2 weeks as these kits become available and if we are able to obtain the appropriate personal protective gear that is required to do this. We will update this page regularly and will let you know as that testing capability becomes available.
We are still in the midst of Influenza season and are therefore still recommending that you get vaccinated against Influenza if you have not as of yet. Given the fact that COVID-19 Coronavirus and Influenza have very similar symptoms it is nearly impossible to differentiate one from the other without testing. We are in the process of developing a process whereby we may be able to triage and test patients with respiratory symptoms and fever for Influenza (As we do have Influenza test kits readily available) without exposing other patients and office staff to potential COVID-19 Coronavirus. As that process is developed, we will update this page.
Until that time we will not be able to see any patients in the office with fever and any lower respiratory symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing as we are unable to obtain the necessary personal protective gear required to protect ourselves and other patients. We are therefore recommending that if you have these symptoms that you isolate yourself from others at home and that you treat the symptoms as if you would a typical common cold (i.e. fever reducers, decongestants, cough suppressants, hydration and rest). If symptoms worsen over time despite these treatments, we would then recommend that you be evaluated at your local ER.
As the testing kits and capability becomes available for us to safely evaluate patients with these symptoms for COVID-19, we will notify you via this information page.
We highly encourage you to visit https://www.cdc.gov/COVID19 for additional details and answers to your COVID-19 Coronavirus questions.
