Boston-based primary care physician Amy Wheeler, MD shares the struggles she and her colleagues face in convincing patients not to delay care because they’d prefer an in-person visit to a virtual one. Returning to pre-COVID-19 patient volumes won’t happen anytime soon: “To begin ramping back up, we are scheduling only about one-quarter of the patients we were seeing before the pandemic started so we can study our workflows and make sure we maintain safety for patients and staff. After this cautious time, we will move through Massachusetts’ four-phase reopening plan and increase in-person visits while continuing to maintain safe social distancing.”
