JimJimJimJim Posted December 5, 2012 Share Posted December 5, 2012 Jim Marshall (not a doctor) said ... Three top medical oncologists I know of in the USA offer remote consultations - Dr Snuffy Myers, Dr Gerald Chodak and Dr Mark Scholz. There are probably others. Remote consultations by phone or Skype are attractive for Australian advanced prostate cancer patients because of the enormous financial risk in a visit to the USA. The risk comes from the combination of: Not being to obtain travel insurance which covers health costs if you have advanced prostate cancer; and The extraordinary high costs of American medical treatment - a simple accident in the USA could cost you your home. My lifelong best friend was a GP so I have had many phone consultations over the years. I have also had a couple of Skype video consultations. I can confirm that Skype video is a lot better than phone, and personal is far better than Skype video. Before today I knew that Dr Snuffy Myers required a personal visit before he began phone consultations. In today's video from him he explains that he also needs a personal visit annually to continue phone consultations. ... end Jim View the video here: PCa Phone Consultations Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
