OPINION York doc: Don't listen to Dr. Pandelidis, or even to me, listen to pandemic experts (opinion)
|Posted by communications on May 22, 2020 at 2:35 PM|
Reading Dr. Steven Pandelidis’ opinion piece on the pandemic makes me feel obliged to respond and show there are other physicians in York who do not agree with him. I am one.
Where to start? First, before I retired from family practice, Steve and I were colleagues in the York medical community. He cared skillfully and compassionately for a number of my patients. Much appreciated.
However, neither of us was trained in the specialties of Virology, Epidemiology or Infectious Diseases. In this brave new Covid world, it is unwise and even dangerous for us riverboat pilots to pretend to be substitutes for those specialty pilots who are the only experts trained to deal with pandemics and carry us through. Full stop.
