Good Day New York: May 5, 2020

Fox’s Good Day New York interviews Jordan D. Metzl, MD, primary sports medicine physician at HSS, live on-air to discuss exercise and how medicine has shifted during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I think exercise is hugely important at a time like this and that as we’ve been physically distant and socially distant, many people are doing less activity than before… leading to fairly negative health consequences,” explained Dr. Metzl who stressed that he wants people to move every single day.

Dr. Metzl also discussed starting to see patients in-person on a limited basis as well as utilizing telemedicine. “I think we will use telemedicine in the future for some of the visits and definitely as a way to screen patients," he said.
