My first experience with Telemedicine

Advances in technology have really helped the medical profession.  A visiting nurse often visited a patient who was just released from the hospital.  During this coronavirus pandemic, nurses don't want to visit a home and risk being exposed to the virus.  A visiting nurse from Northwell Health phoned me and sent a link to download a cell phone app where we could communicate with each other.  She gave me instructions on how I should give Karen injections that she will need for a few weeks.  We have had two electronic visits so far.
