On Wednesday, May 22nd 2019, Associates In Primary Care Medicine held a COPD group visit.
With Dr. Martin Kerzer and pharmacist Tara Higgins, numerous topics of information were discussed. A packed group of our patients enjoyed learning about COPD triggers, exercises they could use to better control their COPD, how respiratory therapists can help them, what certain medications do and more. Information was coordinated by practice manager Jamie Handy and we also had a guest speaker, Dr. Buckley, who imparted expert information. Dr. Buckley works in the field of pulmonary and cardiac rehabilitation and will also be present at our next COPD group.
This group visit was the first in a serious of three relating to the important topic of COPD. Patients who attended felt that they learned a lot and enjoyed their interactive participation. If you feel you would like to join us for our following two COPD group visits, let your provider or a staff member know!
Our next COPD group visit is June 26th at 5:00 PM with Dr. Buckley. Following that, the third visit is July 24th at 5:00 PM with Dr. Kristin David.
