      I take it that telemedicine isn't intended to replace ones local primary care physician, or is it? I mean, certain medical diagnoses can only be made in person, correct?

      I think you still should have a local primary care provider. For basic stuff. For example, shots if you're going to travel etc.
      My PCP does a physical exam every year and sends it to Defy.

      You certainly can't turn to a tele-health practitioner to sort out a swelling in your neck, or to determine if the unusual rectal bleeding you present with is the result of a fissure or colon cancer...and no ethical doctor practicing distance-medicine would suggest that you could.

      Hi!

      I always tell patients to keep their in-person primary care doctor for things that would require more urgent physical exams, but then allow me to do the rest.

      E.g. Blood sugar, pressure, thyroid, depression etc.

      With that being said, we will be getting our patients these devices from Tytocare that will allow us to listen to your heart and lungs better than if I had a stethoscope on your chest in the room.

      Any questions just let me know
