Illinois State Medical Society Support Mitigation Restrictions

(Undated) – Medical professionals statewide are in support of the measures taken by Governor, JB Pritzker. According to Illinois State Medical Society President, Dr. Robert Panton, if no action is taken we are on a trajectory that more people will get sick, deaths will increase and our health care delivery system will quickly become overrun. Panton reminds patients that many preplanned medical services and surgical procedures remain available in most settings. Panton says clinics, hospitals, and doctors statewide will continue to provide care during these challenging times. You are encouraged to contact your primary care doctor or local medical facility with questions or concerns.
