Since we are under a global pandemic right now and we are still observing quarantine protocols at home, it is difficult to go out and see a doctor easily if needed. However, you can always see your doctor while following standard health procedures.
Before making your appointment, make sure to call the clinic or check its website if there are certain procedures that are needed to do before going to your scheduled check-up. Requirements such as wearing of face masks and face shields is a must.
Aside from this, you also need to make sure that the clinic or hospital you are going to or visiting has cleaning protocols and sanitizing measures for the different areas used within their place.
As a patient, you need to observe social distancing during check-in, in waiting rooms, or in lobbies. There are now a maximum number of people that can be accommodated per day or per session so make sure to book your appointment as early as possible.
Be ready for filling up forms upon entrance and checking of temperature as well as screening questions. If you are not comfortable with going to the doctor personally anymore, you can check out this infographic for seeing a doctor online.
