Affiliations
Free PMC article

Abstract

Many countries across the globe utilized medical and non-medical facemasks as non-pharmaceutical intervention for reducing the transmission and infectivity of coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19). Although, scientific evidence supporting facemasks' efficacy is lacking, adverse physiological, psychological and health effects are established. Is has been hypothesized that facemasks have compromised safety and efficacy profile and should be avoided from use. The current article comprehensively summarizes scientific evidences with respect to wearing facemasks in the COVID-19 era, providing prosper information for public health and decisions making.

Keywords: Efficacy; Health; Physiology; Psychology; SARS-CoV-2; Safety.

    Due to the Chinese Virus Scare
  
  I can do Telemedicine visits - if you so desire.
     
      Especially if you're ill - then it's preferred.

           FOR ESTABLISHED PATIENTS only!
                 (new patient appointments require a thorough physical exam)

  Regarding Masks - apparently the local potentate has decreed all shall wear one when in pubic establishments. However according to the Pima Cty Directive: if you can distance or have a medical condition that precludes it, then you don't.  

I have such a medical condition and won't be wearing one, and if that's an issue for you, we can certainly do the telemedicine option.

Let's all Flatten the Fear!

The BIG LIE of "asymptomatic spread" exposed by CDC's own data...

=============================================================
The Danish Mask Study is FINALLY OUT! The First LARGE CONTROLLED TRIAL done.

Only a 0.3% difference! So masks are basically ineffective as we knew all along....
But it "feels" good to some I suppose, and they had to couch some terms in wishy-washy ways
in order to finally get published. But the numbers don't lie.

Politics Playing Medicine -
Eminent physician lays it out for you....

Data Review - by the NEJM
(the pre-eminent medical journal in the Country)

Showed no good controlled data for masks. Only suggestive observational studies. (now the Danish Study is out! See above)

5 Charts That Show Sweden’s Strategy Worked. The Lockdowns Failed - Sweden showed there's a better way to combat COVID-19.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


And this has just come to my attention - The Great Barrington Declaration - a petition from over half a million concerned citizens and so far about 30,000 medical professionals and nearly 11,000 scientists - that say it's time to stop the lock downs!

Great Barrington Declaration - As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies..."

=============================================================
AND now the WHO also joins with the GBD and condemns the lockdowns!

if pre-authorization must be obtained before the visit.

Follow this link to make your appointment -> LINK TO APPOINTMENT SCHEDULING ONLINE.

PLEASE NOTE: do NOT choose a "Follow-Up" time slot for a NEW Patient / "Initial Visit - Consultation".

If you don't have internet access you won't be reading this, and you'll just call and leave a message.

Otherwise if you are online;

Next download the forms below and PRINT THEM OUT and fill them out at home, to bring with you to the initial visit to save yourself time - otherwise you'll need to come in earlier - 30 minutes would be a safe estimate -( but if you're the first appt of the day then this is not possible. You will need to fill them out before you come to the appt.) 

Note that if you are more than 15 minutes late and it's a busy day - you may need to reschedule the appointment. I try to run on time, and so please help me to do so.

A 24 hour cancellation is required or the no-show policy will be enacted. And if there are repeat no-shows we may not be able to continue to see you.

FORMS TO DOWNLOAD - PRINT - AND FILL OUT MANUALLY - AND BRING WITH YOU TO FIRST VISIT:

IMPORTANT: PLEASE collect and BRING WITH YOU to the appointment any imaging studies: MRI's and CT's and Xray reports, and any electrophysiolgic study reports: EMG/NCV, EEG, and any recent labs or other pertinent studies and records.
