New ‘Top Docs’ addresses monoclonal antibody treatment for COVID-19

The latest edition of the Medical Association of Georgia’s (MAG) ‘Top Docs’ show addresses monoclonal antibody treatment (MAT) for COVID-19, and it features Danny Branstetter, M.D., and Joseph Havlik, M.D., who are MAG members and infectious disease specialists with the Wellstar Health System.

Drs. Branstetter and Havlik discuss…
