Wow. It’s been a month since we were given the go ahead by NYS to open. Back then I wrote up a very extensive plan for a safe reopening. In the last month we have had to adjust to these guidelines and are getting use to the “new way” of doing medicine. New consultations are now done via phone or via Zoom. Everyone has been filling out the Covid19 questionnaire form. Everyone has worn their masks (although there were some who forgot, gave them one). Each patient who came in had their temperatures taken. I’m wearing my PPE and every room is broken down and cleaned after each patient. (Honestly, that’s the easy part. We have always done that). although we have many restrictions, I believe NY is getting closer to a clean bill of health EVERYDAY. We are so close to getting back to normal. No, things aren’t the same, but our patients are sounding more and more confident and optimistic everyday, and for that I am truly grateful.
