– In fact, nothing. There is no register of doctors who provide telemedicine assistance. This means that there is a risk of falling into fraudulent clutches, – says Member of the Council of Public Organizations for Patients’ Rights at Roszdravnadzor Professor Alexei Starchenko… – I would recommend resorting to an online consultation only after an in-person visit to a doctor, in case of emergency and only in the form of advice. And making a diagnosis, changing or refining treatment is not a reason for telecommunications. This interaction is a psychological discouragement of the doctor himself. The doctor latently thinks that if something happens to the patient, he will be able to refer to the fact that he did not examine the patient.
