COVID-19 has presented challenges for everyone. We’ve all made substantial adjustments to our everyday lives. We’ve also seen, individually and as a community, just how important it is to prioritize and protect our health and wellbeing. 

As healthcare providers, we are immensely grateful to everyone who has practiced social distancing and infection control during this time. However, while staying home is invaluable for reducing the spread and impact of COVID-19, it doesn’t have to be at the expense of your ongoing treatment or care.

Take Care of the Whole You

As practitioners who specialize in complete wellness care, we know that your overall health and wellbeing has many dimensions. We hope that during these uncertain, ever-changing times, you can take the time to focus on your mental and emotional health. 

Doing so doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming. It can be as simple as the following:

  • Connect with loved ones. They will cherish your phone calls, video calls, and texts.
  • Enjoy the outdoors. Nature is both good for the soul and a safe place to be, as long as you’re adhering to social distancing measures.
  • Appreciate the good. This situation may be challenging, but there are so many people doing good and communities coming together for the benefit of all.
  • Take deep breaths. Your feelings are valid, and you’re not alone in feeling them. Accept them and try to move forward.

If you find yourself at a loss for things to do, create a to-do list of small, achievable tasks that resonate with you. Frame your diploma, fill in those photo albums, write a letter to a loved one, or another activity.

We’re Always Here for You

Being part of a community means being there for that community during times of need, which is why we are committed to providing care to our patients in the capacity that best suits you. At Southwest Women’s Oncology and Health, we have pledged to remain open to ensure that you can receive uninterrupted care.

As a patient-centered clinic, we are always mindful of your comfort and safety and are taking all possible precautions. This includes adhering to all CDC protocols and screening patients before any in-person appointments.

To avoid a lapse in your treatment or care, call now to schedule an in-person or telehealth consultation. Telehealth appointments are ideal for discussing concerns, follow-ups, or medication refills from your home. To set up an appointment, call our office at 505-843-7813.

We are moving to our new location at 5700 Harper this summer, where we have taken extra precautions in our construction to maximize your safety. We look forward to meeting you and showing you our new space!
