Dr. Stout has lost patients to COVID-19. That’s why he tells all who are eligible to get vaccinated.

Dr. Sean Stout works at Sound Family Medicine in Puyallup. Perception is important, he says. That’s why he shares his experiences with anyone who’ll listen.

“One of the biggest struggles I see with my patients and with the society in general with COVID-19 is perspective,” he said. “Our perspective, a lot of times determines our reality and how we live.”

He’s talked to patients who’ve had COVID-19 and didn’t suffer severe illness. He knows some people may get a false sense of security from stories about mild illness. But he’s seen the devastating effects of severe COVID-19 illness up close.

“I’ve lost four patients that I know of, directly to COVID-19,” he said. “So, my perspective, my perception is it’s a nasty disease. Once it sets in, you can get really sick. You don’t want it. You want to do everything you can to avoid it.”
