Easing Into High Season


Our snowbirds are returning in full force! We welcome each and every one. It is always fun to see folks that have been gone for a few months and hear about the summer activities. And those of us that live here year-round tend to come out of hibernation a bit.


So many things planned for November!


On November 19th, 2019, emergency room specialist Dr. Fernando Marquez will be speaking on “EMERGENCY! Being prepared and how to proceed when having a medical emergency here!”


We encourage you to attend and know the ins and outs of emergency services. RSVP to me as space is limited.

On November 27th, 2019, Bioidentical Hormone Specialist, Dra. Cinthia Becerra will speak on Andropause. “Andras” in Greek means “human male” and “pause,” in Greek, a “cessation· — so literally “andropause” is defined as a syndrome associated with a decrease in sexual satisfaction or a decline in a feeling of general well-being with low levels of testosterone in older man. Learn about diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes. This is sort of a “male menopause” and very common. Last year, this talk was standing room only, so RSVP soon!


On November 26th, 2019, vascular specialist, Dr. Hector Escoto will speak on Spider Veins and Varicose Veins. Those creepy ugly things on our legs. Diagnosis and treatment! RSVP to me as well.


We have screening clinics to cover just about everything: Skin Clinic, Mammogram Clinic, Eye Clinic, Knee Clinic, Ear Clinic, Vascular Clinic, Cardiac Clinic, Foot Clinic, Thyroid Clinic, Women’s Clinic, Men’s Urology Clinic. Whew! That covers most of your body.


Other upcoming programs include Botox, “Emotional Wellness,” and “Caring for Our Loved Ones While Caring for Ourselves.”


Last year’s Movember Event was a blast! And this year promises to be even bigger and better as we will have more participants! Join me on November 30th, 2019, 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm join us as we turn the huge parking lot in front of DiagnostiK (Francisco Villa #1389) into a carnival. Games! Free beer! Free tacos! Live music! And a whole lot more! If you are a business and would like to participate, we have some spaces left. Contact me for details/requirements. Remember last year, the mechanical bull?! Hee-haw! It was hysterical! See you on November 30th, 2019!


We begin our monthly Bingo afternoons! Each with the “theme” of the month. This month is Men’s Health so prizes will be based on that theme! All monies raised will go to our Kids with Cancer Food Program.


Clinic Sanmare is scheduled for November 21th, 2019, at 5:30 pm. RSVP as space is limited. This will be fun!


As it seems to be every “high season,” everyone dives right into the rapid social scene and after a few weeks of food, drink, and late nights, end up exhausted, with a cold or the flu. Ease into things!


If you need us, we are here!

Here’s to a radiant week!
