In the last couple of months, our world forever changed due to COVID-19. And veterinary medicine was asked to pivot and adapt very quickly. Telemedicine has been the hottest (and most debated) topic in the healthcare industry. Sure, it is more convenient to allow clients and patients to stay at home. But, are we able to practice appropriately? What about cytology? Otoscopy? Are clients accepting of full exam fees?
Today, I am joined by Dr. Jacqueline Gimmler from Animal Dermatology Referral Clinic in Grapevine, TX. Dr. Gimmler is a board certified dermatologist strictly practicing telemedicine at this time, We discuss our experiences with dermatology telemedicine including how to address suspected infection, setting up client expectations, otitis treatment without otoscopy, and much more!
