This is not what Terri wanted or expected.
Terri has found that working with the protective equipment necessary in this post-Covid environment physically exhausting. The restricted air flow of the thicker mask now required combined with the face shield, head covering and surgical gown saps her energy after just an hour. When we were required to close in March, Terri had every expectation of reopening. She never anticipated that working under these new conditions would be so difficult. However, once she returned to the office to treat patients whose treatment had been interrupted by the sudden closure, she found that continuing was simply not possible.
