Last week I took my dad to a new doctor. The doctor sits down the hall and talks to the patient over a TV screen. I guess this is the future of medicine. I can understand this concept in rural areas where there aren't enough doctors. When the guy is right down the hall and doesn't want to catch anything, I find this troubling. The medical assistant still comes into the exam room and takes the patient's blood pressure and temperature. So the medical assistant is exposed, although sh was wearing a mask and gloved. But doctor God down the hall is too important. I guess this is the way things are heading, but I can't say I'm all that impressed.
