In this episode of the MGMA Insights podcast, we’re joined by Dov Shapiro, MD, managing physician of Associated Pediatric Partners. Dr. Shapiro is here today to talk about how in-office PCR testing has improved his practice efficiency, clinical care, patient satisfaction and profitability.

“Many physicians, and treatment centers have (COVID-19) blinders on, meaning they are ... not thinking about anything else,” Dr. Shapiro says on the MGMA podcast. “It’s important to realize, just because it’s a (COVID-19) pandemic, other infections are not going away. Strep is not going away, I’m still seeing 10-15 cases a week and as many as fifteen cases a day during the peak strep season.”
