Myth: The Introduction of Virtual Visits Means I Won’t See My Doctor Anymore


29 May 2017


Myth: The introduction of virtual visits means I won’t see my doctor anymore.

Fact: Face-to-face visits will remain a cornerstone of primary care, but sometimes an in-person visit isn’t required. According to research, patients who opt for virtual visits do so to save time, gain faster access to care and avoid a work absence. Virtual visits can also enable continuity of care for those in remote communities, requiring less travel.
