Investigators assess the satisfaction of telehealth visits in FPMRS patients

“We found a majority of patients with televisits were satisfied, with many saying it was easy to schedule, easy to comfortably share sensitive information with their doctor, and with the most surprising [finding] being 80% saying they would choose it again over an in-person visit,” says Christina Shin, BA.
