I often do video visits with my doctors. I have used my phone, but I prefer to use my laptop.

I think video visits save a lot of time and energy. Especially if it’s usually a long drive to see that provider.

I’ve never done it before. Ok. I thought maybe they didn’t like me or something.

No, I’m sure they like you!

Is your visit a phone call or a video call? If it’s a video call, you could ask the staff how you do it, like if you need to download an app to your phone or something. :slightly_smiling_face:

I think they do like you.

I’m sure there is a reason for it.

You could even ask them.

Yeah, telemedicine is here to stay and will only increase in popularity. Psychiatry is probably one of the better suited for telehealth. Teledentistry doesn’t work so well.
