Hollywood Diagnostics Center has noticed that reports show that millions of Americans have postponed lifesaving screenings and other preventative care due to COVID-19.
Doctors performed 67% fewer mammograms and conducted almost 72% fewer colonoscopies, in March and April than in January and February, before the pandemic began. The study builds on other research, which has found steep drop-offs in everything from regular checkups to emergency room visits as well as diagnostics visits. And while the total number of doctor’s visits and screenings rebounded somewhat this summer and fall, they’re still not back to pre-pandemic levels in many areas.
What is the Future of Testing
Early this year, people’s fears of catching COVID-19 at doctors’ offices and hospitals was understandable. When the pandemic first came to the United States, public health officials still weren’t sure about how it spread.
But we’ve learned a lot since then. Today, it’s clear that foregoing care is counterproductive. Many Americans, especially those with chronic conditions, are growing sicker due to a lack of proper diagnosis and treatment.
