Avoiding Medical Care Because of Coronavirus Fear is Bad Medicine

As the number of COVID-19 cases in the U.S. climbed in recent weeks, the number of visits to emergency rooms actually declined significantly – especially for heart attack and stroke patients. What’s going on here? And are we looking at a new kind of health crisis?

Host Dr. Jonathan Fialkow and his guest, Dr. Marcus St. John, Director of the Cardiac Cath Lab at Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, discuss this concerning trend and assure patients that seeking emergency care is still a safe thing to do, on this episode of Baptist HealthTalk.
