Meet your Doctor by SKYPE?

Why do you need to visit in-person for a urology or radiology consult?

Do you really need to shake the surgeons hand?

Since prostate cancer doctor consultations rarely involve a physical exam by the actual doctor, would you object to "meeting" with your urologist or radiologist by SKYPE or something like SKYPE?

(blood tests could be done by the local clinic, so you save massive amounts of time and may actually "see" your doctor sooner rather than later.) What do you think?

  • I think it would be a great idea for us as we will need to travel again to see this new medical oncologist two and a half hours away. I would be elated to have a Skype appointment. Congratulations Darryl so happy for you!
