This is our first blog post, and it comes at a time of great confusion and uncertainty. As physicians, we also have a difficult time keeping up with all the new information and recommendations about coronavirus.
A couple things remains paramount. If you are sick, please remain home. In addition, please practice social distancing. You may carry the virus and have no symptoms. This may not be a bad thing for you, but you may pass it on to someone who could get sick and die.
You can still see Dr. Seema Verma, Dr. Sameer Verma, or Dr. Anil Verma if you absolutely have to. However, we do ask that if you are feeling well and have a routine appointment, then please consider rescheduling. We will continue to help you over the phone if we can.
Symptoms include fever, fatigue, dry cough, muscle aches, shortness of breath.
Less common symptoms include headache, sore throat, runny nose, diarrhea, nausea, loss of smell, loss of taste.
If you have severe symptoms you may have to go the emergency room.
If you have some of these symptoms and feel okay, then use the information below.
