If you’ve put off or skipped needed medical care during the COVID-19 pandemic, you’re not alone. Recent surveys (American Medical Association and the Lancet Journal) find that more than a third of U.S. adults have delayed or gone without healthcare. The reasons? Many people still fear exposure to the virus, some feel getting needed healthcare services are harder to come by, and others are worried about not being able to afford care. Parents are avoiding care for their kids in nearly the same numbers for the same reasons.
SCL Health’s Chief Clinical Officer, JP Valin, MD, says skipping health care today could lead to more challenging outcomes in the future. In this video message, Dr. Valin talks about why keeping you safe and healthy is SCL Health’s number one mission.
