Telehealth has been critical during pandemic
A lot has changed since March. The coronavirus pandemic has impacted our lives and complicated our ability to do everyday things, like visiting a friend for coffee, attending a concert or sports event and going to see our doctor. Thankfully, recent changes to federal and state regulations governing telemedicine mean doctors like me are able to see and treat our patients virtually when in-person care isn’t possible. While the addition of telemedicine required a new approach by doctors, patients and insurance companies, telemedicine has been one of the biggest success stories of our community’s response to COVID-19.
