A Note from David Alper, DPM, Trustee
As physicians, our instinct is to be there for our patients during crises. And, of course, the care we provide is the source of income for ourselves and our families. However, between social distancing and stay-at-home orders, our practices are being reduced by 70–80 percent. Many podiatrists are greatly reducing office hours, or have even closed completely.
It’s essential—for patients, referring physicians, and the future of your practice—to clearly communicate your status. Here are a few suggestions and a sample letter that may help.
