When it comes to health these days, any illness that includes cough, fever, aches, fatigue, or other common COVID-19 symptoms is typically the number one concern for patients. And many people feel relieved if they can avoid the doctor’s office or a trip to the hospital. A September report by the CDC found that about 40 percent of adults had delayed or avoided medical care due to COVID concerns. 

Ignoring non-COVID symptoms or health conditions can lead to more serious or worsening health issues later, according to Dr. Javier Gutierrez of LeBauer HealthCare at Stoney Creek. The cost of delaying medical care can take a high toll both physically and financially.

February 11, 2021 | Behavioral Medicine, Primary Care, Awareness (Week/Month), Wellness, Family Medicine

If you’re the parent of a teen, you know that change is constant: their favorite fashion, social app, or show might last six weeks, six months, or maybe just six days.
