I’ve avoided getting out for check-ups, and I lost focus for monitoring numbers like blood pressure. But now, I’m prepared to take back control. And the first step is making an appointment to see my doctor.
I know COVID-19 is still a threat and I’m committed to protecting myself and people I love. That’s why, I’m keeping these things in mind as I reconnect with my doctor:
- Safety Protocols. I’ll call ahead and make sure I understand every in-office COVID-19 protection requirement.
- Telehealth Options. I’ll seek the best way to be at every appointment whether it be virtual or in-person.
- Affordability. If it becomes a concern, I’ll look to community health centers in my area.
- COVID-19 Vaccine. I’ll ask about the importance of the vaccine and inform myself on the facts.
