Please note Governor Reeve’s recent statewide mask mandate
which is in accordance with the CDC’s
ongoing recommendations for mask coverings. 

We believe masks are absolutely essential in the effort to decrease the transmission of COVID19.  There is no evidence to support that wearing a face mask makes asthma worse.  If you or your child are having difficulty with asthma from wearing a mask, please call to schedule an appointment so that we can discuss ways to gain better control of your asthma. In extreme circumstances, a face shield could be considered as a substitute for a mask, although it may not be as effective at guarding against transmission.

 

Please see the attached handout for more information and please call if we can assist in any way possible.

Dear NMAAC Patients and Family Members:

As the summer season approaches, please remain vigilant and continue precautionary measures as COVID19 continues to remain a constant threat throughout our region. As such, and in accordance with CDC and Mississippi Department of Health guidelines, we will continue to carefully screen all patients prior to each scheduled appointment. In doing so, we ask that all persons bring a mask to wear throughout their visit. Unless special circumstances necessitate otherwise, we ask that only the patient enter the clinic, and only one parent or caregiver accompany their child to their visit. This is to protect the health of you and your loved ones as well as our clinic staff.

 

In order to continue to maximize social distancing, we will continue to allow allergy shots and biologic injections to be administered in your vehicle. As temperatures increase, please notify our staff if you are unable to wait in your car so that we can prepare for other arrangements.

 

We will continue to offer telemedicine visits as able for all who feel uncomfortable or have concerns regarding in-office appointments, and for those at high risk. Please be assured that we are also taking every precaution with strict sterilizing/cleaning protocols at all times.

 

Please call our office with any concerns or questions. You are all in our constant thoughts and prayers, and as always, we are here to help in any way possible.

 

Sincerely,

Matt Oswalt, MD

Karen Maltby, MD

The Mantoux tuberculin skin test (TST) is the standard method of determining whether a person is infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Reliable administration and reading of the TST require standardization of procedures, training, supervision, and practice. How is the TST Administered?

Immunotherapy works better for some types of cancer than for others. It’s used by itself for some of these cancers, but for others it seems to work better when used with other types of treatment. What the immune system does Your immune system is a collection of organs, special cells, and substances that help protect you from infections and some other diseases. Immune cells and the substances they make travel through your body to protect it from germs that cause infections. They also help protect you from cancer in some ways.
