Pond Lehocky’s founding partner Tom Giordano hosted a live Q&A on Facebook with Dr. Scott Davidoff. Telemedicine and telehealth were the main subject of discussion. Viewers were able to get their questions in real time about receiving treatment during the pandemic, the future of telehealth, and Social Security disability.
Giordano moderated the Q&A during the 40-minute broadcast which can be viewed here.
“We’re in an unprecedented time,” Giordano opened with. “COVID-19, this pandemic, is affecting all of us and we thought it would be special to have a doctor join us today to answer some questions for our clients and followers.”
“We’ve been doing strictly telemedicine during this time in accordance with the state and federal guidelines. It’s been a new experience for us at Mainline Spine, but it is going surprisingly well,” Dr. Davidoff shared. “The biggest difference is not being able to physically examine patients but is been a great way to keep people afloat during this time.”
They closed their broadcast by sharing resources for patients to stay informed.
