|To My Patients,
The temperatures outside are rising and spring is here, but COVID 19 is still with us. As a primary care and pulmonary physician with many respiratory patients, I'm taking the present situation very seriously.
In an attempt to prevent the spread of disease, I've decided to temporarily reduce office hours.
Instead, we'll conduct "virtual visits" by smart phone - remember to smile, we'll be seeing each other on the phone.
If you develop a fever, cough, shortness of breath or any other "suspicious" symptoms, call immediately - don't wait.
If you need a breath of spring air, walking outdoors is good. Just keep your distance. If it's still too chilly, exercise indoors; the Royal Canadian Air Force Exercise Plan (developed in the 1950's) is an excellent way to do it, you can find it on the net.
Stay well and away from crowds. See you on the phone,
Igal Staw, Ph.D., M.D.
