TeleCounseling — Here to Stay.

Good article discussing telemedicine –specifically,  virtual counseling. It concludes: “The coronavirus pandemic has forced medical centers around the world to  adopt telemedicine.  Some patients are not comfortable with the technology, or can’t afford it; others need services that cannot be provided entirely online.” But the conclusion is that this is generally good. Such counseling crosses state lines. But the federal government has changed its rule to allow it. My observation is that much of this is here to stay.
