Clarification to the former patients of Dr Pearl: King City Medical
Jun 08, 2020

Most of the former patients of Dr. Pearl has received the letter for enrollment with Dr. Somasundaram. First we like to thank all the patients that dropped, texted or emailed their signed forms to the clinic and we appreciate their loyalty to our practice! THANK YOU for your trust!

The letter stated that you need to enroll before May 31st, this is the date that ministry had canceled the status of your enrollment but if you like to stay at our practice, please fill the form and email it staff-kcma@rogers.com, text a picture of the signed form  to 647-863-2521, or drop the signed form to the mail box (installed only for these forms on the right side of the clinic front door). By doing so, we can still submit this form (though it's passed May 31st) and resume your status of being a patient at or clinic. Sadly, if we do not hear from you soon then we can't keep your status as our patient and if you present latter, at that time accepting you will depend on Dr. Soma's practice capacity and we can not guarantee having an available spot for you. So we urge all of the patients to submit their signed form ASAP by one of the three ways mentioned above.

Stay safe everyone!

Infected tick causing Lyme disease- King Township! King City Medical
Jun 09, 2020

Dear patients this is an important message, Lyme disease causing tick (deer tick or black-legged tick infected with Borrelia burgdorferi) was found in our neighborhood. One of our patient who lives just west of HWY 400 between Lloydtown-Aurora Rd and King Rd presented recently to the office after got bitten by a tick. The tick was sent to the Public Health Laboratories (PHL) and we got the results today positive for the bacteria causing Lyme disease (Borrelia burgdorferi). Our patient started the treatment but King Clinic doctors want to share such information with our patients and our community.

Here is a summary of patient information sheet from UpToDate website.

What is Lyme disease?

Lyme disease is an illness that can make you feel like you have the flu. It can also cause a rash, fever, or nerve, joint, or heart problems. People can get Lyme disease after being bitten by  a tick called black-legged tick or deer tick), it can transmit the germ that causes Lyme disease from its body to yours. But a tick can infect you only if it stays attached for at least a day and a half.

The ticks that carry Lyme disease feed on deer and mice. They are only about the size of a poppy seed when they are young, which is when they most often spread Lyme disease. They grow to about the size of a sesame seed as adults. Ticks are found in tall grass and on shrubs, and can attach to animals and people walking by. Ticks cannot fly or jump.

Deer tick - Black-legged ticj

What are the symptoms of Lyme disease?

Symptoms can start days or weeks after a tick bite. They include:

A rash where you were bitten – The rash often appears within a month of getting bitten. It is red, but its center can be the color of your skin. It might get bigger over a few days. To some, it looks like a "bull's eye"


Fever

Body aches and pains

Heart problems such as a slowed heart rate

Headache and stiff neck

Feelings of pain, weakness, or numbness

If a person is not treated, further symptoms can occur months to years after a tick bite. This is sometimes called "late" Lyme disease. Some people develop late Lyme disease without having any earlier symptoms. The most common symptom of late Lyme disease is pain and swelling of the joints, such as the knees. But some people can have other symptoms, such as trouble with memory and thinking. They can also have skin problems, such as skin swelling or thinning, but this happens mostly in Europe.

Should I see a doctor or nurse?

Yes. If you have symptoms of Lyme disease, see a doctor or nurse. Some people don't know that they were bitten by a tick. Or they might not remember having a rash or other early symptoms.

Is there a test for Lyme disease?

Yes. Blood tests can show if you are infected with the germ that causes Lyme disease. But it takes time for the blood tests to turn positive. This means the tests won't work if you get them right after being bitten. Also, the blood tests usually come back negative when you have the initial rash that goes with Lyme disease. Because of this, if you have the rash, you do not need a blood test to confirm that you have Lyme disease.

If your doctor or nurse suspects you have Lyme disease, he or she will do an exam and ask you questions. The doctor or nurse will use this information (and your blood test result, if needed) to decide about treatment.

How is Lyme disease treated?

Lyme disease is usually treated with antibiotics. There are a few different types. Treatment with antibiotics should help your symptoms go away. Sometimes, symptoms improve quickly. Other times, it can take weeks or months for symptoms to go away.

What if I am pregnant?

If you are pregnant, talk to your doctor. Some medicines for Lyme disease are safe to take if you are pregnant, but others might not be.

Can Lyme disease be prevented?

The best way to prevent Lyme disease is to avoid getting bitten by a tick. But if you were already bitten, your doctor might give you an antibiotic. In some situations, this can reduce your chances of getting Lyme disease.

To try to avoid getting bitten by a tick, you can:

Wear shoes, long-sleeved shirts, and long pants when you go outside. Keep ticks away from your skin by tucking your pants into your socks.

Wear light colors so you can spot any ticks that get on your clothes.

Wear bug repellent that protects against ticks, such as a spray or cream containing DEET. But you should talk to your doctor or nurse about using DEET on children. For example, DEET should not be used on babies younger than 2 months, and experts suggest not using products with more than 30 percent DEET on other young children.  

On your clothes and gear, you can use bug repellents that have a chemical called "permethrin."

Shower within 2 hours of being outdoors if you think you have been in an area where there are ticks.

Put dry clothes briefly (for about 4 minutes) in a dryer after being outdoors.

Check your clothes and body for ticks after being outdoors. Be sure to check your scalp, waist, armpits, groin, and backs of your knees. Check your children, too.

If you live in a place that has deer or mice nearby, take steps to keep those animals away. Deer and mice carry ticks.

If you find a tick on your body or on your child, use tweezers to grab it. Then pull it out slowly and gently. After that, wash the area with soap and water.

You do not need to keep the tick (But preferably better to keep it so we send it to the PHL). But knowing what it looked like can help your doctor decide about your treatment. See if you can tell:

Its color and size

If it was attached to your skin or just resting on your skin

If it was big, round, and full of blood


You should see your doctor or nurse if you have a tick and you cannot get it off.

You should also call your doctor or nurse if you think you have had a tick attached for at least 36 hours (a day and a half). Then he or she can decide if you need to take a dose of an antibiotic to help prevent Lyme. Doctors only recommend antibiotics to prevent Lyme disease in some situations. It depends on your age, where you live, what kind of tick bit you, and how long it was attached.

If you or your child was bitten by a deer tick, you should watch the area around the bite for a month to see if a rash appears.
