Dr. Terrance Dean and Scot Kirk talk to Columbus physician George W. Barnett Jr.,  who specializes in family medicine at OhioHealth Physician Group, about how the COVID-19 pandemic affected healthcare in the Black community. 

Dr. Barnett says COVID exacerbated existing health disparities. With so many people unable to see a primary care doctor during the early months of the pandemic, those communities already disadvantaged in health care access saw higher death rates from COVID and other diseases. Historical factors that sowed distrust in the Black community towards health care providers have created another barrier to better health.

Barnett also emphasizes the importance of having a good relationship with your doctor and finding a physician whom you can trust.
