Season of Thanks. Reasons for Giving.

It's the time of year when we take stock of the people and things for which we are most thankful. For us at Manet, that means our wonderful and dedicated staff, our precious patients and our generous supporters new and old. During this season of thanks, we'd like to share with you stories of how your support helps us deliver care to those who need it.

I'm not alone: Allen's Story

Allen Doyle spent most of his adult life traveling the world. With degrees from Boston College and Harvard University, he’s taught students, mostly in math, in Vienna, London, Stockholm, Egypt, Mexico and Thailand. He speaks 20 languages, though modestly insists “only two or three fairly fluently and only one fluently – English.” Yet, upon his return to the States a dozen years ago, he was flummoxed when confronted with the task of securing health insurance.

“I lived overseas for all of my working life, so I never paid enough quarters into the Social Security and Medicare system,” explained the 75-year-old retiree who now lives in Barintree. “When I began to look into all the various options, it was overwhelming. Then somebody said to me, ‘I know this guy, Ken Moore, at Manet Community Health Center. You should go see him.’ So that’s what I did.”

Flu Vaccine is Your Best Shot to Protect Against Flu

Fall brings cooler temperatures, colorful leaves, and football games. It also means another flu season is upon us. Last yearís was rough. The CDC classified 2017-2018 a high severity season with high levels of outpatient clinic and emergency department visits for influenza-like illness, high influenza-related hospitalization rates, and widespread influenza activity across the United States for an extended period. While itís not possible to predict how severe the upcoming season will be, we know that the best way to prevent flu and its potentially serious complications is a flu vaccine.

Cardiology Services Coming to Manet

Dr. Katy Bockstall

Manet is happy to announce that Dr. Katy Bockstall will begin seeing adult cardiology patients at our North Quincy site this month.

Dr. Bockstall is a cardiologist with the Cardiovascular Center at Boston Medical Center. A graduate of Tufts University School of Medicine, she completed her residency at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, and a fellowship in cardiovascular disease at New York University School of Medicine.

Dr. Jessica Chao

Dr. Bockstall's arrival is just the latest development resulting from Manet's clinical partnership with Boston Medical Center. Earlier this year, Dr. Jessica Chao, a pediatric neurologist, joined Manet, seeing patients age 2-22 for diagnosis and treatment of pediatric neurologic syndromes, including headache, seizures, concussions, ADHD, as well as evaluation for developmental delay and autism and IMPACT testing for concussions.

Manet is also collaborating with the Grayken Center for Addiction at Boston Medical Center to offer comprehensive, integrated care for young adults affected by substance use. This program adds to Manet's Medication Assisted Treatment program for substance use disorders offered at all sites. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 857-403-0815.
