Your Health Home in Rural Northeastern California


November 2016

It has been a pleasure working with my patients at Mountain Valleys Health Centers.  I have enjoyed my time here with you all and thought I would offer some tips to continuing your care after my absence. 

If you are looking for prescription refills, remember it is necessary to establish care with a new provider.  For those patients who are taking chronic narcotic prescriptions please have patience.  These medications are in a special class and many providers are not comfortable prescribing these medications.  On top of this the DEA has challenged family practice providers with new regulations and guidelines requiring reassessment of each patients need for therapy.  These new stipulations are to protect you the patient from inadvertent overdose and death.

If you have outstanding orders, these will be followed up by other MVHC Providers.  Remember if you do not hear back on a test that was completed, be sure to give our office a call. 

Thank you for choosing me to be your family practice physician, I wish you all the best. 

Kind regards,

Dr. Barrios
