What to Eat Wednesday: Champagne cocktails!

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

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.

This sparkling beverage has half the calories of real champagne!New Year's Eve is just days away...I know we want to ring in 2018 with a champagne toast, but for those of us living with diabetes, even that bit of champagne can really put your health at risk.

Want to join in the toasts without abandoning your diabetic meal plan? Try this Champagne Fooler, courtesy of The Mayo Clinic.
