Posted by John Kuhnlein | Jul 16, 2020 | 0 Comments

With the Covid-19 pandemic getting dramatically worse instead of better, a lot of people have decided that skipping routine medical appointments is a good idea. After all, who wants to sit in a waiting room filled with people who are coughing and sneezing.

The Washington Post published an article about the five medical appointments you should go to, despite the risk. Per The Washington Post, you should do all of

Are Woodward And Bernstein Still There?

the following, even in the midst of the worst health crises the world has seen in a century:

*     Cancer Screenings

*     Dental Appointments

*     Physical Therapy

*     Blood Work

*     Emergency Room Visits

You can read the details about why each of these is so important. The bottom line, however, is that your odds of dying from Covid-19 are much, much lower than they are of dying from cancer or heart disease. You surely don't want to ignore a treatable condition in hopes of avoiding a much rarer one.

No Getting Out Of This

So, even though it seems counterintuitive, for these five medical visits, it makes sense to go and get them done. Wear a mask and wash your hands and hope for the best.

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
