No doubt we are living in times of uncertainty. One day it seems like this pandemic is easing out the door and the next day it comes knocking again. If you are experiencing these weekly tosses and turns, imagine what’s going on in the minds of your patients. With communication as the cornerstone of healthcare, doctors should be a strong source of information on health and wellness for them. It's even more critical as in-person appointments have declined or been converted to virtual consults because of COVID-19. In a digital and mobile world, it's up to healthcare providers to keep that door of communication open and consistent.
