To cure sometimes, to relieve often, to comfort always
-Dr. Edward Livingston Trudeau
I have taken the COVID-19 pandemic seriously, and therefore see only those patients who really need in person care. I still use a KN95 mask for these encounters, and expect patients to come prepared with their own mask. My office is now in a large, well-ventilated space. It can be a bit chilly because of these factors, so bring a sweater or blanket, if you would like.
Many of my consultations do not require in-person meetings. I use a variety of telemedicine options for these encounters: Zoom, FaceTime and simple phone calls are most common. I can help you with these options if you are unfamiliar with them.
As of January 20, 2021, I completed my primary Pfizer 2-shot coronavirus vaccine series. I received booster vaccines on October 15, 2021, May 4, 2022 and the bivalent booster on October 11, 2022. I encourage you to get vaccinated as well, as the risks of vaccination are low compared to the risks of COVID and Long COVID. There is good evidence that vaccination reduces both of these risks well.
