The recent surge in telemedicine services fueled by the COVID-19 pandemic has improved access to psychiatry care and may have set the stage for even more dramatic forays into virtual care in the future. However, not all patients want video visits, and it is not clear that the way telepsychiatry is practiced right now will be the best model for clinical practice once the crisis abates, speakers said at the annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association, which was held as a virtual live event

I think telemedicine is great for certain ailments. If you have to see a physician for a routine visit, then it's a very convenient tool to use. It saves you time traveling to the doctor's office, paying for parking, and eliminates the anxiety of sitting in a waiting room full of sick people.

Telemedicine is also helpful when you need to see a doctor out of state. Now a days many people will have medical procedures done in hospitals in a different state or country. A patient can simply have a teleconference with their doctor to follow up on how they are doing, review their medications, and answer any questions with the doctor. I think this is the future of medicine!
