I made a late April appointment for my mom with a geriatrician. I could have made it for months ago, but didn't want to have to deal with traveling (3 hour round trip) with my mom in winter. Too unpredictable and she refuses to travel when there is a single snowflake anyway.
So now the appointment is canceled because of the virus. I agree and understand, but no idea when it can be rescheduled. At the rate things are going, it might not be until bad weather starts again in the fall. Which means more than a year due to the long harsh winters we experience. Mom NEEDS a diagnosis and treatment! And no there are no closer specialists. She lives in a very rural area.
