Following proper and routine care from a primary care physician is one of the best ways to avoid medical emergencies. Don’t neglect your wellness checks because of the COVID-19 outbreak. Providers are following safety guidelines to help their patients and staff stay safe by keeping their offices free of the coronavirus. To help you avoid close contact with others, check with your doctor’s office if they offer early morning, late afternoon/evening or limited weekend hours. Many doctors are even providing consults via phone or email for basic medical advice.
