🍎 Today’s Health Tip ~ COVID-19 Question

Should I go to the doctor or dentist for nonurgent appointments?

During this period of social distancing, it is best to postpone nonurgent appointments with your doctor or dentist. These may include regular well visits or dental cleanings, as well as follow-up appointments to manage chronic conditions if your health has been relatively stable in the recent past. You should also postpone routine screening tests, such as a mammogram or PSA blood test, if you are at average risk of disease. Many doctor’s offices have started restricting office visits to urgent matters only, so you may not have a choice in the matter.
