Telehealth & Houston
Telehealth has become increasingly common due to the coronavirus pandemic, with some medical facilities even requiring patients to book their first appointment as a telehealth visit. While telehealth is especially popular in rural areas where medical care may be far away, it’s also quite common in urban areas such as Houston. This is especially true since the start of the pandemic, as people feel safer meeting a doctor without having to go into a hospital or clinic. At the Noble Institution, we help people book safe and convenient telemedicine appointments from the comfort of their own home. In this blog post, we’ll go over some of the existing options for telehealth in Houston.
