Doctor says telehealth ‘not going anywhere’
While virtual learning has certainly garnered no shortage of critics over the last two years, a similar but unrelated pandemic technology has received earnest praise.
“Telehealth … it’s not going anywhere,” Dr. Andrew Gisleson, a family medicine physician at Roaring Fork Family Practice, said Monday. “That’s going to be a benefit for everyone going forward.”
Even as COVID-19 case counts plummeted, several of Gisleson’s patients have still preferred logging in for their doctor’s visit as opposed to showing up for it in person. Gisleson, who treats patients ranging in age from newborn to 102, does not mind either.
