Score Great Products for a Great Cause


At this time, our office continues to be open to new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. We are continuing operation in an effort to keep patients out of the urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments, which increases the chances of being exposed to the virus. We have x-ray and ultrasound in the office to prevent you from having to go elsewhere.

For those patients who cannot or wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

November is the month to increase diabetes awarenessNovember is American Diabetes Month and in order to raise money to support its America Gets Cooking to Stop Diabetes campaign, the American Diabetes Association has partnered with several companies offering great products you might already be using.

For this year’s awareness campaign, the ADA is emphasizing the importance of better cooking (and eating!) on your overall health, not to mention on the prevention and management of diabetes. On a special website dedicated to the campaign, the ADA will share healthy recipe ideas as well as tips for getting started on a more active lifestyle.

If you want to be a part of improved diabetes awareness in the U.S., shopping with any one of these vendors will earn an automatic donation to the ADA’s campaign! Descriptions and partnership details below. For a full list of companies offering support to the ADA campaign, click here.
