How Does Wildfire Smoke Affect Your Health?

Wildfire season is here.  With the recent Pine Gulch and Grizzly Creek wildfires in our area you can see and smell the smoke in the air.  Smoke can cause irritation of your eyes, nose, throat and lungs and pose a risk to your health, especially if you have asthma.  If you are experiencing increased shortness of breath, chest tightness, coughing or wheezing - this may be a sign that your asthma is flaring.   Please stay indoors and keep your windows closed to minimize your exposure to smoke in the air and contact us for an appointment. We have options to see you by telehealth and in office appointments. We are here for YOU! 

Thank you to the brave men and women fighting these fires. Thank you for the job you do every day to keep our communities safe!
