Changing of the Guard - Dr. Lubin to Retire at the end of October
With the arrival of Dr. Yadav, Dr. Lubin has announced his retirement, effective October 31. Dr. Lubin joined Hightstown Medical Associates in 1986.

If you would like to do the same, you can read his retirement statement and post your well wishes on his farewell page.

NJ Announces new Docket App to access your COVID Vaccine Status
SVG TestDocket is a new app from the NJ Department of Health that makes it easier for you and your family to securely access your COVID-19 vaccination record. If you don't have your vaccination card with you or you have lost it, you can easily access your record through the app to provide proof of COVID-19 immunizations as needed.

Individuals with an email or phone number on file with the New Jersey Immunization Information System can access and download their COVID-19 vaccination record using the app. The app can also provide access to family members' records through a shared account. For more information, and to download the app, go to the Docket Page on the Department of Health website.

And while you are at it, why not also download the COVID Alert NJ app, which will notify you if you have been in close proximity to someone who has tested positive?

Phillips Respironics CPAP Recall
Phillips Respironics has initiated a recall of many of their CPAP machines. If your machine is affected, it is recommended that you discontinue use of your machine. It is unclear if machines will be refurbished or replaced by the manufacturer. If your current device is over 5 years old, your insurance may cover cost of replacement. We recommend contacting your durable medical equipment provider (the company that provided you with your Respironics machine) and see if you are eligible for a new machine, and if not, whether your device will be replaced or repaired.

Use the Respironics website to register your device - this will confirm that you have an affected device and begin the process of replacement by the manufacturer.

There is also a contact number at Respironics if you would prefer to speak to someone there: 1-877-907-7508 Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm Eastern Time (U.S.).
