What can I use it for?
You can use telehealth or telemedicine for many of your medical issues instead of fighting traffic where you spend half your day trying to get to the Dr, waiting the other half of the day in the Drs office and lets not even talk about scheduling time to see specialists ….for all you know you could get worse instead of getting better just waiting to see that Dr in his or her clinic.
