Doctoring Online

This is a very interesting concept. It's a service that allows you to mostly connect with your doctor online through video chat, IM, and email after an initial face-to-face office visit. I think it's a great idea for simple problems that people have that can be diagnosed over the phone or email. I think it breaks apart when a patient comes in with more complex problems or health issues, making a good physical exam necessary. Then you need an actual doctor's appointment, just like with any other private practice.
