Should I keep my GYN appointment during this Coronavirus pandemic?

Consider this:

If too many people get sick at the same time, it will overwhelm our healthcare system.

 

If it's a routine GYN checkup  - no problem, no concerns; RESCHEDULE FOR LATER.

If you are having a problem - pain, abnormal bleeding; KEEP YOUR APPOINTMENT.

 

While you won't be exposed to large numbers of people in our small intimate GYN boutique.  You may be exposed to large numbers of people in your commute to and from the office.

Be smart.

Rest assured that TODAY'S WOMAN/DR. RAHMAN  is taking the necessary precautions. Please do the same.
