Telemedicine is the Future – Last week I was scheduled for a lab test to ascertain if my blood glucose readings were stabilized by diet and medication, however, I wasn’t sure if this test required a fasting protocol or a non-fasting one. Until recently, to determine which of these was required for an accurate test I would have had to call the doctor’s receptionist in the hopes of being connected to the nurse. If this failed, I would have been forced to leave a message on their already overloaded answering machine and hope against hope that a live person would actually return my call. However, this time I had a totally different experience that allowed me to contact and receive a prompt reply. I can’t help but wonder if we are looking at the advent of a new horizon of what is being called Telemedicine and/or Telepsychiatry. You can watch the entire live TLDR episode here: http
