Skyping with your doctor

One of the problems we had to solve by living a more transient lifestyle was my doctors appointments.  I have PTSD and I have a follow up appointment with my doctor every three months.  I wasn’t sure how we were going to solve this problem.  I was not looking forward to the prospect of having to find a new doctor every few months and having to explain my needs over and over again.

Luckily I found out that my doctor does Skype appointments for those that already have been seeing him.  So, I had my first remote appointment with him today and his office phoned in my prescriptions to the Walgreens that is nearest to us here on Fripp Island.

I don’t know that this method would work with every kind of doctor, but if you’re seeing the doctor just for a follow up it would be worth checking to see if this option is available.  For my prescriptions, I gave them the location of the nearest Walgreens and the doctors office called them in.  Done and done.
