Why Telehealth?
An in-person visits offer the traditional health care for any health issue, facilitating physical examinations, immediate referrals etc. In-person visits have always been the best option for an initial diagnosis of a new condition or illness.

However, with the advent of modern communication tools, remote consultations can be a great option when a face-to-face consultation isn't possible due to pandemic or such reasons. Telehealth can be a useful option for scenarios when the patient has flu-like symptoms, needs a follow up discussion on test results, or for repeat scripts and referrals.
