Although many people have only used telemedicine, or virtual medicine, for the first time during the pandemic, this may become very popular going forward.  However, some worry that doctors appointments that are not done in person may not allow the physician to pick up on telltale physical clues which can be masked by the camera.  Body language can give a physician important clues to your health.  Despite the pro’s and con’s, I think that going forward most patients will feel a mix of physical and virtual appointments will be the best bet.
