Forbes looks at the challenges Parsley Health founder Robin Berzin, MD faced as she pivoted her company from in-person care in fancy flagship clinics to all-virtual care in early 2020. The membership-based primary care company expanded its telemedicine services from 10 states to 35 in four months, and doubled its staff to 150.

A local physician shares his frustration with finding and affording the ultra-cold freezers required to store certain COVID-19 vaccines. Freezers that were once $4,000 are now $20,000, says Doug Cochran, who says a black market has sprung up. “The public might think, ‘oh he’s a doctor … he has great connections to some medical supply house,’ but we’re like everyone else.
