Doctor’s offices are safe to visit, as well. Misty Shell, manager at the Summit Community Care Clinic, said half of the clinic’s patients have been afraid to go to the doctor while the other half are insisting to be seen in person.
To help ease the concern and prevent the spread of the virus, the clinic is offering telehealth services, which allow patients to get treated without going to the doctor in person. The clinic uses a platform that sends a link to patients so they can enter their doctor’s “waiting room.” Once the appointment starts, patients are able to video chat with their doctor.
“They’re on video and audio, so the provider then can come and connect with them face-to-face,” she said.
