MARMORA MEDICAL CENTRE
1 Madoc Marmora, ON K0K 2M0 (613) 472-6131
www.marmoramedical.com

Our community is fortunate to have a lovely medical facility that houses a family doctor and registered nurse, dietitian and social worker.
Dr. Melissa Holowaty has been practicing family medicine in our community as part of the Central Hastings Family Health Team for the past six years and is an invaluable resource to our residents.

Currently the Family Health Team is not accepting new patients as Dr. Holowaty is working at maximum capacity. The municipality encourages those without a physician to enroll in Health Care Connect by calling 1-800-445-1822 and to register with the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care Program. (Ontario.ca/healthcareconnect).

Marmora and Lake is currently seeking additional physicians to join Dr. Holowaty and the Central Hastings Family Health team at the Marmora location. Our total three-tiered incentive (municipal, county and provincial) is very competitive for joining a rural medical practice.

Lyme Dissease

Lyme Disease is an infection caused by the corkscrew shaped bacteria, Borrelia burgdorferi. In Ontario, these bacteria are spread by the bite of blacklegged ticks (formerly called deer ticks). The blacklegged tick can be found sporadically throughout the province.

Blacklegged ticks are the only type of tick in Ontario that can consistently transmit Lyme disease in Ontario. Even with a bite from an infected blacklegged tick, there is only a small chance of getting Lyme disease. Ticks feed on blood by inserting their mouthparts (not their whole bodies) into the skin of a person, or an animal. Ticks feed slowly and their body gradually enlarges as it feeds, making it more visible. It usually takes from 3 to 7 days for a blacklegged tick to take a complete blood meal.

Ticks are most likely to transmit infection after being attached for more than 24 hours of feeding because the bacteria require time to migrate from the tick’s gut to its salivary glands. Because of this delay, prompt detection and removal of ticks is one of the key methods of preventing Lyme disease.

What are the symptoms?
Early symptoms of Lyme disease usually occurs within one to two weeks, but can occur as soon as three days or as long as a month, after a tick bite. If you develop a fever, headache, muscle and joint pains, fatigue and a skin rash, especially one that looks like a red bull’s eye, promptly seek medical advice. Not all patients with Lyme disease will develop the bull’s eye rash.
