Excerpts from the Article

Doctors’ offices accustomed to hands-on treatment have had to reinvent themselves.

Seaview Orthopaedics, based in Ocean Township, has seen volume decline by 75%. It laid off 40% of its 300 employees until business picks up again. It rescheduled patients coming in for physical therapy to ensure there is no more than one person in the waiting room. And it is trying to update its technology so the administrative staff can work from home.
