A Message From Dr. Copperman- 6/16/2020
With sadness and with gratitude to them for their many years of love and support to you and to the clinic, I am letting you know that Meg Hamilton, FNP and Jan Lintz, PA will be moving on from our clinic as of July 31, 2020. They are both wonderful people, excellent practitioners, and we wish them all the best as they continue on their paths in life.
It gives me great pleasure to announce that Dr. Brittany Alloway will begin full time practice at South Hilyard Clinic as of July 6, 2020. Many of you already know her from the months that she has trained with me during osteopathic school and family practice residency. Dr. Alloway is warm, competent, and kind and I trust her to take care of you and maintain the tradition of South Hilyard Clinic as a place of love and healing into the future. She will be available to take care of Jan's and Meg's patients. The month Brittany will overlap with Meg and Jan will give them time to consult and make the transition of care smooth for patients.
Long-term, we will bring in additional practitioners to support the clinic and assist with the care of our patients health needs. The values of universal love and protection that are the guiding values of our clinic will continue to be the basis of our care for you. We look forward to seeing you at your next visit at South Hilyard Clinic.

Do You Suffer From Seasonal Allergies?
Basic Protective Measures Against the Coronavirus
Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others, especially the elderly. Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:
Wash your hands frequently- Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with soap and warm water, and use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth- Your hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth and enter your body.
Maintain social distancing- Try to keep at least 3 feet between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. If you are too close, you can breath in the droplets that may contain viruses.
Practice respiratory hygiene- Make sure you, and the people around you cover their mouth and nose while coughing or sneezing. If using a tissue dispose of immediately.
If you have a fever (over 101 degrees), cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early- Stay home if you feel unwell. If you feel you should be seen by a medical provider call in advance.
