As communities around the country continue to re-open, you may have questions about when to resume in-person visits with your healthcare providers, and what to expect during a visit. Always check with your doctor to see what’s best for your healthcare needs.
Here are some considerations for in-person visits:
- Don’t put off necessary care, especially if it’s urgent or may lead to complications, such as heart attack or stroke.
- Continue preventive care such as immunizations and cancer screenings.
- Providers and facilities will minimize exposure, so you may experience some changes during your visit.
