This was my first Telehealth visit to a Health Care Professional. It went smooth, I could see Dr. Harlan as wellas he could see me. He had my medical record handy and we were able to converse easily about my history and current problem, When I do not physically have to be in the office, Telehealth is easy. It is also easy to talk with Dr. Harlan. Thanks a lot.
