Both Nimaroff and Bromley are trying to prevent patients from bringing any visitors, which is proving to be very difficult for the patients. Instead, the physicians allow them to video call their family and friends toward the end of the exam.

ECRI’s Furman warned about the potential risks of not allowing patients to have visitors.

“This must be balanced with the psychological safety of the family unit,” he explained. “Having mother alone during visits can potentially lead to an increase in anxiety and depression.”

Nimaroff is hopeful that at some point in the not-so-distant future they will get a little more relaxed on their visitor policy.
