Pediatric practices face financial strain
“Physicians are trained to do what is best for their patients and to do no harm. Independent practices have sat quietly watching, feeling hopeless as our communities cannot access the care they need, shamefully shutting our doors to spend hours on the phone with insurers. But no more. We can no longer remain quiet: Our pediatric patients may not be suffering from COVID-19 at the alarming rate of adults, but this pandemic will send long-standing shockwaves to future generations if our voices are not heard.”
Nidhi Kukreja is a pediatrician.
