Only one data point, but:

I know a few people in the same boat. Itís not fear or hesitation that keeps them away, rather limited access.
Access is an issue. A family member requires blood work every six months to monitor medication levels and has been told, repeatedly, that the office isn't seeing patients that aren't actively ill. While I understand the prioritization, the DIY method of guess and adjust at home is risky.

What I really don't understand is why all physicians, pharmacists, etc. weren't prioritized in the first wave. Would help. methinks, by increasing access to medical care.
