    I’ve only done telemedicine during my Psych rotation. It was geared around follow ups for maintenance. We discussed current moods, thoughts, adherence, etc… I see the pros of telemedicine as convenient for the patient. They don’t have to drive or wait much. I have friend’s who use it all the time and love it. On a personal note, I think it can be convenient for doctors as well for the same reasons but there are times when you need a good physical to understand the situation. Also, having the patient there in front of you has that personal touch with the knowledge that it really is just the two of you there and it is a safe place to open up.
