Health Care is a huge industry and On-line Health Care is going to be a large part of it. Increased privacy, timeliness, lower costs and convenience are just a few of the benefits. But is it safe? Is it private?
Dr. Miles Jones is Medical Director of Net Doctor International.
Dr Jones quotes industry statistics stating that the average physician visit is only 13 minutes - including greeting time and looking at your chart. And you only have 17 seconds to get your point across to your doctor (on average) before he or she takes control of the conversation.
Time spent with a patient is only one of the benefits that NetDr.com brings to the party according to Dr. Jones.
It can relieve the embarrassment of certain issues, be available 24x7 and save money.
