CBS 8 interviewed Thomas Buchholz, MD, about the importance of not postponing breast cancer screenings during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Buchholz noted a significant drop in cancer screenings in the U.S. earlier this year, which is expected to result in more late-stage diagnoses and additional deaths in the coming years. He discussed stringent safety protocols that are in place at Scripps MD Anderson to protect patients and staff. Dr. Buchholz also is a Scripps Clinic physician.
