Seeing a doctor online via apps has become increasingly popular but there are restrictions on the drugs they can prescribe. The laws have good
intentions however given the current circumstances I think it would be beneficial for both doctors and patients if those restrictions were lifted.
Taking vitals can be done at home at home, and doctors can use a microphone to listen to heart and breathing rythyms and many people have or can get
automatic blood pressure testing devices at prices far cheaper than the average doctor visit(or monthly insurance premium).
While there is no substitute for a face to face, hands on doctor visit, given the current pandemic and our level of technology we can take care of a
basic medical and psychiatric needs from online appointments.
Lifting restrictions on prescriptions will make a world of difference for doctors and their patients.
