Annu Navani, MD

Dr. Annu Navani presents the impact that Covid-19 had on patients and pain management physicians, including challenges in providing treatment under the lockdowns and during the Covid-19 patient-physician access restrictions. Dr. Navani mentions that their previous telehealth platform for mental health services allowed them to quickly expand their ability to provide medical services through telehealth. She also mentions that the Covid-19 pandemic emphasized the importance of being prepared for events where medical institutions can be shut down with short notice. Dr. Navani further explains that the telehealth platform allowed the physicians and staff to quickly adapt to the restrictions and continue to offer high-quality pain management care.
