We veer a bit off the mission of this series with a unique opportunity that we couldn’t pass up. While our guest is not part of a Reno business, she provides information that is helpful in understanding how institutions are handling this outbreak.

Crystal Phares, M.D. is a resident physician in the emergency room of several Seattle hospitals. She shares with us how things have changed, and what the coronavirus outbreak looks like in Seattle.

Crystal is a graduate of the University of Nevada, Reno’s School of Medicine and a former nurse with close to a decade in the health care field. She discusses how procedure has changed for seeing patients who present with COVID-19 symptoms, and how the traffic through the emergency room has changed since the outbreak began.
