Dear Wayne County Residents/Patients/Friends,
It is with excitement that I find myself writing this letter to you. The past several months have been very challenging. As a medical community we have been continuously concerned about you and your health. We have worked hard to stay up-to-date on the latest literature and studies regarding the pandemic as they have become available. Furthermore, have strived to provide quality care under these complex circumstances. We certainly appreciate your patience regarding the uncertainties of these times that we have been enduring.
Happily, it appears that the coronavirus numbers are starting to decrease rather than increase. This is likely the result of good hand hygiene, masks, social distancing, proper quarantine when necessary, and vaccinations. The results we are seeing with the vaccination are quite promising. We are very excited as more and more people are getting vaccinated in our community. This will create herd immunity if we reach proper numbers, therefore, decreasing further spread. We are very fortunate to live in a society where many ominous diseases have been eradicated because of vaccinations.
With that being said, let’s certainly not let our guard down now. It is still important to continue to take measures that will prevent further spread. In the days to come, tight restrictions will lessen, vaccinations will increase, and the spread of this virus could potentially be controlled. If we do our part now, we will certainly get back to our normal lifestyles at some point in the near future.
As a clinic, we would like to invite you to “come back home” and resume your normal health care needs. We have taken extensive measures to ensure the clinic is clean. We have hired additional staff to ensure that the doorknobs you touch, and the pens that you might sign your name with, are sanitary. We miss seeing you and are excited to continue to assist you in meeting your healthcare goals. Many physicians across the state have become concerned that perhaps some people have put their health, blood work and routine maintenance care on the back burner while the pandemic has been active. We have all heard the saying, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” We truly look forward to seeing you either in clinic or on telehealth! May you continue to stay happy and well during these trying times.
Zach Snedeger PA-C
