US Doctors Who Video Chat with Patients

I don’t know your reaction to 7% of doctors doing video chat with their patients, but that is actually higher than I thought it would be. The article says that psychiatrists and oncologists are the most likely doctors to engage in a video chat with patients. I guess that makes sense since much of those visits are quite routine and have do be done regularly for a very long period of time.

Personally, I look forward to more and more online visits with doctors and I think video is a key to making that a reality.
