Your health and wellbeing are critical to living a productive, normal life. That's why it's so important to have a reliable health care provider that you can call on, who has your best interests at heart, no matter the circumstance. Sometimes, though, change is necessary. You may have decided to switch health care providers for a number of reasons like new insurance coverage, unhappiness with your current provider, or even medical malpractice. Whatever your reasons, choosing a new health care provider is a serious one. An MD may be qualified to practice medicine, but that doesn't mean they're a good match for your needs. They may not have the empathy, experience, or expertise that you need in your life.
If you're like most people, you need a health care provider who is qualified in their field and offers exemplary guidance: an unbiased figure you can lean on for any kind of medical advice. The truth is, however, that not all health care providers go above and beyond the "call of duty" to ensure their patients feel valued, respected, and comfortable.
Fortunately, Chris Archer, ANP-C, has built his career on providing his patients with professional, personalized medical services in Monterey. If you live in Tennessee, and need a trustworthy medical team that specializes medical services like primary care and urgent care, look no further than Primary Care & Occupational Health Center.

Primary Care in Monterey, TN
To some, primary care might seem like an ambiguous term. What does primary care actually mean, and what exactly is a primary care provider? In the simplest terms, primary care means general medical care. A primary care provider (or PCP) specializes in diagnosing, treating, and preventing ailments and conditions that affect a patient's health. Some primary care health care providers focus on specific areas of medicine, like internal and family medicines.
You can think of primary care providers like the quarterbacks of healthcare. Much like a quarterback passing a ball, the PCP makes sure patients get the appropriate care, in the correct setting, by the most qualified care provider. They always do so in a way that aligns with the patient's needs and values. Typically, your primary care health care provider will be your first point of contact in Monterey's medical system.
Why is Primary Care Important?
Through regular checkups, primary care treatment can prevent serious problems from happening in the first place. Statistically, adults who see their primary care health care providers regularly lower their odds of premature death by 19%, compared to adults that only see specialists. Seeing a PCP isn't just a good idea on the surface - studies show that regular checkups actually prolong your life.
If a longer life weren't enough reason to consider primary care services in Monterey, think about your bank account. According to a study, adults who use their primary care provider save as much as 33% more on medical bills than people who only see specialists. Primary care also helps save money by keeping you out of the emergency room, where medical care can be more than 4x as much as outpatient care. In one North Carolina ER, health care providers found that patients could have saved 700% or more had they received care from a PCP instead of going to the emergency room.
Additionally, primary care providers can catch and treat problems at their outset, which often happens during annual checkups. Catching an illness early is always preferable to catching an advanced illness, from both a health and financial standpoint.
At Primary Care & Occupational Health Center in Monterey, we specialize in several facets of primary care, including:

Urgent Care in Monterey, TN
By definition, urgent care gives medical care to individuals who have non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries. The goal of urgent care is to get the patient in the front door of the facility, treated by a health care provider or nurse practitioner, and sent on their way with little to no recovery time. Urgent care is fantastic for busy people who need help when they have minor injuries or illnesses like a cut or a cold.
Urgent care facilities in Monterey are often more convenient for patients who don't have the time to visit their primary care provider or do not have a PCP. Urgent care is also a great choice for people that need attention immediately but know that their situation isn't dire enough to go to the emergency room. With urgent care services, patients can get the treatments they need the most and get them quickly. In fact, according to the Urgent Care Association of America, around 92% of urgent care facilities reported wait times less than 30 minutes

Therapy in Monterey, TN
As males age, their hormone levels decline naturally, leaving many men with reduced self-confidence, increased body fat, and a decreased sex drive. For millions of males in the United States, the answer to their middle-aged problems begins with testosterone replacement therapy or TRT for short. TRT is used to optimize hormone levels, which are often imbalanced as men age. TRT has been shown to greatly improve the moderate-to-severe symptoms that are common in low-T individuals.
Hormone levels can also be inadequate in men of any age. This is due to genetic interference and abnormalities stemming from hormone receptor action through exposure to chemicals that disrupt the endocrine system. While many TV commercials will tell you low testosterone symptoms begin during middle age, many adult men lose testosterone as early as their mid-20s.
If you're craving more vitality and have noticed a lack of enjoyment in your life, our TRT services in Monterey might be a good fit for your needs. At Primary Care & Occupational Health Center, all prospective TRT patients must qualify for treatment. Qualification includes comprehensive lab tests and consultations with your primary care provider.

Her home once sat on a large plot three concrete steps up from street level in the small town of Monterey, Tennessee. It looked as if it belonged in the country instead of near downtown. The old house with its weathered brown boards and sagging front porch would appear to some as an eyesore, even in a tiny town.
The front porch held an assortment of worn wooden chairs where she and her daughters sat to shell beans, shuck corn, and escape the summer heat swelling inside. They watched as folks passed by and exchanged a wave or shouted a “howdy-do.” Once the neighbors saw those smiling faces, the house wasn’t in as bad shape as they initially thought.
Funny how our eyes are fooled by acts of kindness.
Inside the tidy house was a parlor that opened to a large kitchen equipped with a wood-burning stove, stacks of iron skillets, and a cabinet that held everything from baking soda to castor oil. On the large table, anchored in the room’s center, sat a wooden dough bowl where fresh biscuits were kneaded every morning, and folks enjoyed hot coffee poured from an old, dented, enamel pot.
Outside the kitchen door was a small rear porch near the well that supplied fresh water. Hoes, rakes, and buckets surrounded a small wobbly chair that could hold a weary soul after a long day. In its summer splendor, the garden rested on the back edge of the property just beyond the cherry tree and the outhouse with its half-moon carved door.
I loved to play between the outhouse and the cherry tree behind my great grandmother’s house in the summer. The old tree teemed with ripe red tempting fruit. I would climb to pick as many cherries as possible before I got caught by the mighty hands of my tiny, fierce Great Grandmother, Mollie Sparks.
“How many times have I told you, young’un, to not eat too many cherries because you gonna’ spend the rest of your day in that outhouse!” she would yell.
I knew I was immune to the side effects of too many cherries, and when she turned to walk back into the house, I continued climbing the tree to retrieve more delicious red goodies.
One day, however, I got sick, and she swore it was those cherries. I knew it was just a bug because, on that day, I had not climbed the tree. But the castor oil came out of the cabinet, and even though my mother was present, she knew she could not stand up against her grandmother’s will. I took the dreaded castor oil, and to my surprise, it wasn’t as bad as I feared it would be. Plus, it sure made the bug fly away.
The funny thing about facing fear: once you do, it usually flies away.
When my great Uncle Casto moved into the old house with his mother, Mollie, in their later years, he and the rest of the family, insisted she install indoor plumbing.
“What do I need plumbing for?” she asked her son and son-in-law. “I have been doin’ just fine all these years. That’s just a waste of a dollar!”
They built an indoor bathroom anyway, and of course, she stubbornly refused to use the new facilities until one night it became so icy in the mountains, she gave in. Afterward, she gathered the boys, and humbly said, “I know I sometimes can be right willful, but I do thank you.”
The funny thing about misplaced stubbornness: humility will usually stop it.
Well into her 80’s, Great Grandmother Sparks and Casto got into an argument over who grew the best garden. So, they built two to see which one would reap the best produce. Casto noticed his mother’s hoed rows were crooked, but he also knew cataracts blurred her vision. Many nights, when his mother was fast asleep, he took his hoe and, with a flashlight in hand, straightened her rows and cleared the weeds she missed.
Both gardens bloomed beautifully that summer with Grandmother Sparks laughing with glee, “See, mine is the best! I won because I have fewer weeds!” She never knew just why her garden was ripe with beauty.
The funny thing about unselfish love: it does make our spiritual gardens grow.
I went by the old property the last time I visited the Tennessee town where I was born. Mollie’s home is long gone, and now there are brick steps that lead up to a fine brick house with no front porch. It is pleasing to the eye but not as beautiful as the old run-down house, once filled with smiling faces and joyful giving hearts.
The funny thing about my life: I learned an awful lot from those fantastic folks who once walked between the outhouse and the cherry tree.

MONTEREY, Tenn. — This town has never fully recovered since the last coal mine shut down in 1983.
The population has stagnated. Even large swaths of commercial real estate — prime for restaurants and truck stops — sit empty by Interstate 40 exits.
But it was not only the loss of a major industry that crippled the local economy. For more than 15 years, Monterey city leaders haven’t been able to perform the most basic of government functions: lay the sewer pipe they need.
Because of threats to public health, Monterey, like dozens of other small towns across Tennessee, has been hamstrung by a state moratorium on new sewer connections, blocking business development. The conflict comes as Tennessee is seeing more potent storms, possibly fueled by climate change.
"(Sewer) overflows are ... a continuous battle,” said Bill Wiggins, the mayor.
Across the state, roughly one in five municipal systems are under some form of moratorium because of excess overflows, state officials said.
Heavy rains inundate aging wastewater systems, causing them to spill bacterial-laden raw sewage into streets and streams. Nutrients can run into rivers, leading to low oxygen levels that starve fish. And toxic algae can flourish in waters flooded by excess nitrogen and phosphorus.
For those and other reasons, state environmental regulators limit new taps when sewers in communities can’t handle their loads.
Monterey made some progress on stemming overflows, and in March the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation lifted a complete moratorium. But key parts of the city are still off-limits because of repeat overflows.
“We are continuing to work with our municipalities and utilities to help them understand the environmental, human health and economic impact of overflows,” said Jennifer Dodd, deputy director of TDEC.
Increasing demand on community sewer systems
Pressures are now mounting on these towns, including Pulaski, Ashland City and Signal Mountain. Tennessee has seen more heavy rainstorms in the past seven years compared with the previous seven; the average number of extreme rain events annually increased fivefold.
Many of the systems have exceeded their useful life, which experts say is roughly 50 years. Some cities also are booming, adding residents and hardened surfaces that boost stormwater runoff, further taxing old sewer pipes. Experts warn that these overflows may be worsening as the climate continues to change.
“The systems weren’t designed to handle some of the extreme precipitation events we are having,” said Janey Camp, professor of civil and environmental engineering at Vanderbilt University.
To stem overflows, municipalities can replace old corroded sewer lines, seal manholes and expand or build new sewer treatment plants. A 2016 scorecard by the American Society of Civil Engineers gave Tennessee’s wastewater infrastructure a D-plus and identified a total of $2.6 billion in projects needed to rehabilitate aging sewer systems.
“The real challenge is funding and investment,” Camp said. “The small towns have limited resources.”
Funding the improvements
Monterey, population 2,900, needs $10.5 million to build a new sewer treatment plant — more than double the city’s annual budget. For now, officials are repairing lines built in the 1960s and have cobbled together loans and grants from the federal government. But the new plant is still uncertain as officials negotiate a contract with the town’s largest industrial customer.
Meanwhile, TDEC in September awarded $98.5 million to Franklin, one of Tennessee’s wealthiest and fastest-growing cities, for a new sewer treatment plant. That was more than half of the total clean water fund awarded statewide during the fiscal year. Some environmentalists questioned the fairness of that loan, considering Franklin could access the public bond market and use other funding sources.
“Franklin, you’re rich,” said Scott Banbury, conservation coordinator for the Tennessee chapter of the Sierra Club. “Go sell your own bonds and go build your own treatment plant. Let the poor communities have that.”
State officials said they offer especially low-interest loans to small communities, and sometimes forgive their loan principal.
“We are looking at additional ways to help more small communities take part in the program,” TDEC spokesman Eric Ward said.
The problem is not unique to Tennessee. Towns across the country are struggling to fund upgrades to sewer systems. Leaders of cities in Minnesota, for instance, call it a crisis and banded together to push the legislature for more funding. The city council president of Jeffersonville, Indiana, said her town doesn't have the $44 million needed to stem overflows, according to news reports. At the University of Iowa, engineers were testing new wastewater treatment technologies, hoping to defray costs for aging small-town sewer systems.
Heavy rain infiltrates old pipes
One of the main causes of overflows is groundwater infiltration. Old pipes crack over time. When heavy rains saturate the ground and the water table rises, the pressure forces clean water through the cracks into the sewer lines.
“As those storms increase in quantity and volume, then that’s going to very likely influence the frequency and volume of overflows,” said George Kurz, an engineer who consults for municipal wastewater systems.
The added water rushes through the network and overloads pumps, backing up sewage through manhole covers and other openings. Wastewater treatment plants also open bypass valves, sending untreated sewage into creeks and streams. Without the releases and overflows, sewage could back up into residents’ basements.
In the tiny town of Pulaski, about an hour south of Nashville, heavy rains in February caused more than 30 million gallons of sewage to overflow, according to a federal lawsuit filed by Tennessee Riverkeeper, an Alabama-based environmental group.
The Pulaski wastewater treatment plant discharges to Richland Creek, a tributary of the Elk River, which is popular with kayakers and canoers. State regulators were pursuing formal enforcement this summer, according to a TDEC letter.
Pulaski officials did not return calls seeking comment.
“Sewage pollution is one of the biggest threats to the Cumberland and the Tennessee rivers,” said David Whiteside, executive director of Tennessee Riverkeeper. "And it doesn't matter how far left or right on the political spectrum people are. They're all uniformly disgusted by raw sewage.”
Scientists weigh link between climate change and large storms
While many people may associate heat waves and drought with climate change, scientists also suspect that human activity could be producing heavier downpours. That's because warmer air can contain more water vapor than cooler air, giving storm systems an added punch.
Studies show there is “high confidence that extreme rainfall has become more common over North America and the United States," said Jonathan Gilligan, professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Vanderbilt. Scientists have "medium confidence that the change is because of human influence on climate,” he added.
Indeed, Tennessee has seen an increase in heavy rainfall events over the past 15 years, according to National Weather Service records. Throughout most of the 2000s, the state saw fewer than five heavy rain events a year. From 2010 to 2017, however, the state averaged 16 such storms annually. 2018 has been a relatively inactive year, with just three.
When it pours in Ashland City, a growing town northwest of Nashville, sewage overflows onto streets, said Clint Biggers, director of the Public Works Department. The city inspected its sewer lines with video cameras and is working on some repairs, but the problem is daunting, Biggers said.
At more than 5,000 residents, Ashland City’s population has grown by 15 percent since 2010, and the sewer system is now at capacity, Biggers said. He expects a new treatment plant, double in size, would cost about $15 million.
“We’re trying to get ahead,” Biggers said. “You don’t want to have to shut down building because you don’t have capacity. But it’s hard on small towns, when they don’t have the money.”

MONTEREY, Tenn. (WTVF) — After our hardest days, we need as much support as we can get. A family in Monterey understands that after what they've just lived through. This is one grateful family. They see just how differently this could have played out.
"We've worked really hard to be here," said Terry Kennedy, standing next to husband Mark.
The couple loved the home they shared with eight kids on West Hoyt Avenue in Monterey.
"I was actually born and raised here," Mark said. "This house has been in the family a very long time."
In the earliest hours of Tuesday morning, 14-year-old daughter Maddie felt something was wrong.
"I smelled burning wood," she said. "I thought something was burning."
She told 19-year-old brother Izzy.
"I get up and start walking around the house," Izzy continued.
"He was screaming for us to get out of bed," Terry remembered. "We got the kids out."
"Smoke was just pouring out," Izzy said. "It was just insane."
"We watched for four hours as our house burned down," Terry said.
Fire crews are still investigating what caused this. There's a lot that's difficult about this day. Terry's wedding dress is damaged. Then there's 8-year-old son Jaxon who'd raised more than $300 for Jump Rope for Heart. It's now gone.
Despite everything Tuesday, the kids are still playing and smiling. Because of what Maddie noticed and Izzy jumping into action, everyone in that house is okay.
"I think we had a couple angels watching over us," said Terry.
"We've gotta kinda look into each other and find the good you can take out of it," said Izzy. "Yeah, we're alive. That's the best thing we can ask for today."
There is a GoFundMe to help out this family.

Monterrey and Nashville SC will go head-to-head in the 2023 Leagues Cup semifinal in GEODIS Park on Aug. 15th at 9:30 p.m. ET.
Here in the 2023 Leagues Cup semifinal will be the first time that Monterrey and Nashville SC will meet each other on the pitch.
Monterrey is the only Liga MX team remaining and has been having an outstanding tournament beating four American and two Mexican teams. Monterrey is now looking to slow down the red-hot Nashville SC team.
Nashville has been called one of the top favorites for the Leagues Cup following the dominating match they had in the quarterfinals.
How have Monterrey and Nashville SC got to this point of the Leagues Cup?
Nashville SC had an easy run in their quarterfinal match against Minnesota when they beat them 5-0. Nashville was able to show their power and strength coming into that match and just not let Minnesota have any chance of being able to come back or even have a fight in the match.
Monterrey had a little more challenging task to get to the semifinal. The first task was meeting LAFC in the quarterfinals, and the second was trying to come comeback against LAFC. The first task was completed when they LAFC with all of their power. After LAFC was up 2-0 against Monterrey, everyone thought it would be over. Monterrey had different plans and started to go into attack mode. Monterrey got a penalty kick and even an own goal to help them build to the point where they would strike for the match-winner.
Monterrey and Nashville SC head-to-head and prediction
Monterrey is the only surviving Mexican team left in the tournament. If they want to be in the finals, they must find a way to disrupt Nashville’s defense. Nashville could be better regarding discipline; they have five red cards in the three matches. Monterrey can play off this and get Nashville to slip up.
Nashville could have been better in playing Mexican teams, losing 4-3 to Toluca and drawing with Club America 2-2. Nashville has four wins and one loss in their last five matches, whereas Monterrey has five wins and zero losses.
Both Monterrey and Nashville have been able to score goals, but Nashville has given up more goals. Monterrey has scored 11 goals and given up four during the Leagues Cup; in comparison, Nashville has scored 13 goals and given up eight.
GEODIS Park will be loud and rocking when this match occurs, but Monterrey could push past Nashville. It will be challenging for Monterrey with their top scorer, German Berterame, out of the tournament with an injury, but Monterrey has many more key pieces they can put in place.
Prediction: Monterrey: 3 and Nashville SC: 2
