What is an Online Medical Video Consultation?
Today, through telemedicine services, it is possible to consult a specialist directly from home, without the need to go to the hospital. This is made possible by the use of computers, tablets, or smartphones. Video consultations cannot always replace a visit to the medical center or hospital, but it is often a valid alternative in cases where physical contact between doctor and patient is not necessary.
For example, when you want to seek advice from a specialist on laboratory tests or diagnostic reports. In addition, the video consultation is particularly suitable as a support to determine or modify a therapeutic path, to update the referring doctor on your condition, or to share doubts and uncertainties about your state of health that can cause anxiety and worry.
