Q. What are the most common conditions you treat?
There are many medical conditions ideal for virtual visits. Dr. Consultations are the clear majority of all DrVisits. Why? Because patients want to talk to their doctor for a multitude of reasons or conditions. Like reviewing their prescription medications, or a new symptom, or a chronic disease like diabetes or a heart condition. Physicians like attorneys sell their time and their expertise and they do that by providing consultations.
In a recent study, results indicated that as doctor-patient relationships improved, so did patients' health outcomes. Patients lost weight or saw their blood pressure levels drop, just for examples. Researchers believe that good communication and related health improvements were equal to the benefit of taking a daily aspirin to lower heart attack risk.
