Scot Ackerman , M.D.

April 15, 2021

“We can’t make up those that we missed, but we can certainly make sure people get back on track and get those cancer screenings,” said Dr. Scot Ackerman.

When COVID-19 was first announced as a national emergency, cancer screening rates plummeted on a national scale. One year later, those screening rates are on the rebound but are still not at their pre-pandemic rates.

This week Dr. Ackerman joins WJXT to discuss the importance of getting screened for cancer and how healthcare facilities are taking the cautious measures to ensure patients’ safety.
