Hamilton Physicians like tele-health

It took some getting used to, but a large percentage of Hamilton Family Doctors say they would like to be able to continue virtual medical appointments after the COVID crisis has passed. 87 percent said they would like to have the tele-health option. The remote medical consultations became necessary during the COVID outbreak, which out of necessity forced physicians to adapt to the technology.

The survey conducted by the Hamilton Health Team polled 126 physicians and six nurse practitioners and physician assistants about online healthcare. Participants submitted anonymous responses between April 23 and May 6. Virtual healthcare has been talked about for years, but the pandemic has forced it to become a reality. Experts also say it’s not often doctors get a chance to offer feedback through surveys.
