There was a time not long ago when people could visit their family doctors and meet at length for a thorough consultation. Nowadays, there are signs up in every clinic that say words to the effect of "The doctor will see a maximum of 2 problems per visit".

I bet no one ever thought that would be the case. Regarding telemedicine - might there come a time where patients are only 'supposed' to present to clinic if they have a physical ailment, and all other problems have to be investigated and treated by scheduled telehealth call?

It's a scary proposition to me- but feel free to disagree. Would this make your lives easier, harder? Could this hypothetical scenario benefit patients somehow?
