We intend to remain operational and are actively educating providers and clinical teams with the latest CDC guidelines.

Message From Dr. Posner

These are unprecedented times. I have lived for 63 years, 39 of those as a doctor, and I do not remember there ever being an infectious pandemic that has impacted our country so negatively. Everyone’s lives have been changed.

During those 39 years as a doctor, I have witnessed this fact: People tend to have much more fear of the “unknown” than they do once they find out the answer as to what the problem is and what can (or cannot) be done about it.
Unfortunately, over my four decades of practicing primary care medicine, I have had to deliver really bad medical news to patients, such as cancer or serious organ disease diagnoses. The majority of the time, I have seen patients more fearful during the diagnostic stages than when I finally provide them the diagnosis, the treatment options and what can be expected.

In the case of Covid-19, there is much fear because we do not have many answers as yet: When will a vaccine become available? How far are we away from a treatment? When will our kids get back to school? Will the supermarkets run out of food? When will sporting events and conferences resume?
When can we expect life to get back to “normal”?
