Published on: 

An experienced doc offers his advice for the physician-patient relationship after the COVID-19 pandemic.

William Cooke, MD, explains his experience staying connected with patients during the COVID-19 pandemic and why that is so important even as pandemic conditions wind down. As the town physician of Austin, Indiana, Cooke has received national attention and accolades for working there when the opioid epidemic led to a local HIV epidemic. He described his experiences in his book, “Canary in the Coal Mine: A Forgotten Rural Community, A Hidden Epidemic, and a Lone Doctor Battling for the Life, Health, and Soul of the People.”
