Dr. Laura Purdy is here today to discuss Telemedicine as a New Way Access Health. Telemedicine is a practice that’s not new and has become even more prevalent in the pandemic, but many people are skeptical about it. How can doctors provide quality care over video? How do you choose a doctor you can trust? Dr. Purdy gives us some clear direction and helpful information on telemedicine, as well as tips to prepare for your telemedicine appointments and what to think about afterwards when following up with your regular doctor.
Laura Purdy is a board-certified family medicine physician who is wrapping up 14 years as an officer in the US Army. Laura started working in telemedicine in 2016 as a full-time physician. Laura has now worked for dozens of virtual health companies across the industry and also consults for early-stage telehealth startups in the US and UK. She has 49 state medical licenses and believes in empowering young businesses to meet and exceed their vision.
