Dr. Agarwal was honored to be featured on the cover of Arizona Physician. His interview with Edward Araujo of the Maricopa County Medical Society (MCMS) covered many aspects of practicing medicine during the time of COVID-19.
The interview discussed Agave Pediatrics’ response to COVID-19, as shown in the following excerpt: “Agave Pediatrics adjusted early on. They increased use of tele-visits, became more aggressive in cleaning office suites, and followed shifting guidance from the state and county.”
It also mentioned the future of medicine during the pandemic: “Agave Pediatrics has made getting vaccinations easy. The process is very quick and doesn’t require seeing a practitioner. Dr. Agarwal foresees more practices following suit, leading to an increase in vaccination uptake.
Dr. Agarwal also predicts greater separation of patients between sick and wellness visits. Agave Pediatrics believes this method has helped to reduce transmission of disease and allows staff to focus on procedures according to whether they work on sick or wellness visit days.”
