You can still "see" your doctor without going to the office or an emergency room.
What is telemedicine?
Even with social distancing, you can still get routine medical care. Most doctors, including myself, are offering “virtual visits” during the pandemic. Many medical issues can be taken care of this way, but if not then you and your doctor can decide whether it's necessary for you to have an in-person exam. Video and telephone visits are both options, and keep in mind that no calls are recorded or any video images are saved in your medical record without your permission.
