Coronavirus (COVID-19): a message from your doctor
Over the course of the past several weeks, I have been closely following the news coverage and clinical updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other medical professional resources about the spread and danger of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Understandably, I have been asked questions from many concerned patients regarding what to do in the face of this new public health concern. This is an evolving problem. As I learn more about impact of COVID-19 world-wide and in our community, my recommendations regarding travel, ongoing medication use, and attending work and social gatherings are changing to keep pace with recommendations from national health agencies, mandates from our governor, and my clinical opinion as your doctor.
As you seek to find answers to questions that you may have, feel free to review the latest recommendations from the CDC and American College of Rheumatology Here are some answers to frequently asked questions. Our staff at Integrative Rheumatology will continue to monitor the current public health concerns closely and provide updates as new information arises.
Wishing you good health and wellness,
Charles A. Withers, II, M.D.
