I can see consulting a doctor via video. I'm a little bit more skeptical about doing it over my phone. Anyone else feel the same?

re: The Doctor Will See Your Data Now: Wirelessly?
Health technology could help. Even if you live close to a major city, it is difficult for patients to easily accommodate doctor's schedules, and the long wait times in doctor's offices are frustrating for everyone. As an example, my son is at the pharmacy right now with his father getting a prescription, it's past his bedtime, he left at 6:45 pm and could we have sent a photo of the skin problem via smartphone and had a diagnosis and picked up the prescription while he slept? I don't know, maybe that's unrealistic, but the future looks good for those with transportation issues, disabilities, rural areas....
