Melissa James, MD on Friday, April 2, 2021 at her Tryon Medical Partners office in Charlotte, NC.
James can still recall meeting her first coronavirus patient. The woman came to her office complaining of lingering respiratory problems though she thought it may be allergies or a cold that she could not shake. James asked a series of questions about a friendÕs travel and advised they should do swab for the virus. The patient was positive. Photo credit: The’ Pham/ Charlotte Observer (used with permission)
