Meet our new provider Sydney Berger!

Sydney was raised in Hudson, WI. She received her undergraduate degree in Kinesiology at University of WI-Eau Claire. She then moved to Mesa, AZ to complete her Master’s in Physician Assistant Studies at A.T Still University and from there she was placed in Wichita Falls, TX to do her clinicals. She most enjoyed her internal medicine rotation because it included inpatient and outpatient work with geriatrics as well as included numerous hands on procedures. She enjoyed this rotation so much that she did it twice. 

Her philosophy of care focuses on treating the whole patient with conservative treatments prior to more invasive ones. Her interests include preventative medicine, minor procedures, and encouraging patients to exercise and eat well. In her spare time, Sydney enjoys ninja training, hiking, travel, and live music. Two interesting things about Sydney are that she has a twin sister and will be competing on American Ninja Warrior Season 13.

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, skin cancer is the MOST COMMON type of cancer in the U.S. & worldwide. In the U.S. more than 2 people die of skin cancer every hour and 1 in 5 individuals will develop skin cancer by the time they turn 70 years old. The risk for melanoma is doubled with 5 or more sunburns.

Prevention is crucial. Direct sun exposure during peak hours between 10am and 4pm should be avoided, avoid tanning beds, wear protective clothing, and apply a broad spectrum sunscreen with a SPF of 15 or higher. Sunscreens should be applied regularly throughout the day if you are outside. It's also important to know your skin so make sure you have your skin examined on a regular basis. 👍

It's Taco Tuesday! So let's TACO 'bout cholesterol. Cholesterol is a fat-like waxy substance and it helps build cells in the body. Too much cholesterol can increase a person's risk of heart disease. High levels of cholesterol can cause fatty deposits to develop inside blood vessels. Over time, this can impair circulation or cause a clot to form, resulting in a stroke or heart attack.

The cholesterol numbers on the top of the picture are from someone who is physically active and follows a healthy diet. The red numbers below are from someone who does the exact opposite.

Do you know your cholesterol numbers? If your cholesterol is high, maybe you should consider opting for a healthy taco version for Taco Tuesday 😉

Don't wait for your health to deviate. We understand that people are delaying their medical care due to the pandemic. If you have one or more chronic conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, lung disease, or kidney disease, you don't want to postpone care. Delaying your care can worsen long-term outcomes.

Chronic medical conditions require a close partnership with a medical provider. Regular monitoring and a designated course of treatment over a lifetime are necessary to prevent diseases from advancing. Don't wait until it's too late.

Protect yourself this upcoming flu season. The CDC recommends an annual influenza vaccine for everyone 6 months and older.

Influenza and Covid-19 are both contagious viruses that can cause respiratory illnesses. Although they are different viruses, their symptoms can be similar. It is possible to have the flu and Covid 19 at the same time. So why take that risk? Are you team #flushot or #noshot?
