In this podcast by The Dose titled “We Need Primary Care More Than Ever to Fight COVID-19,” health policy expert Farzad Mostashari, M.D. is interviewed.

Primary care providers are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic every day, treating sick patients even as they worry about bringing the virus home to their families. Many still lack adequate protective gear, and they worry about the financial stability of their practices.

With the U.S. starting to reopen, we need our primary care practices to keep their lights on — not only to test and treat people with mild symptoms, but also to address health concerns that people have neglected while staying home.

In this episode of The Dose podcast, Mostashari (who advises and supports hundreds of primary care practices across the country), explains what it will take to ensure doctors can continue caring for Americans throughout the pandemic.
