Recently my daughter in Arizona put off her impending hip replacement surgery because of the upsurge in Corona virus cases in her area. Here in California we experienced 7000 new cases in one day just this week. So, what should you do about medical visits scheduled in the near future. Well, if you are uncomfortable with being in a medical office right now and your condition is not life threatening you could probably wait a bit. Of course, you can’t wait with heart or stroke problems. CMS is urging us to continue to do our preventive care, particularly cancer screenings and immunizations. We have some excellent doctors and hospitals and I have found that they are very aware of shielding us from harm but using PPE and limiting the number of patients in their office at one time. Naturally, always check with your medical provider to get their imput as well.
