“The department I’m in really had to ramp up telehealth, train people to do what they’ve never done before via video. I’m in a specialty that is very hands-on so it was [interesting] trying to figure out how do you adapt your practice to be interacting with a patient or a family member via telehealth.”

The department I’m in really had to ramp up telehealth, train people to do what they’ve never done before via video. I’m in a specialty that is very hands-on so it was [interesting] trying to figure out how do you adapt your practice to be interacting with a patient or a family member via telehealth without being able to actually touch the patient and get all the information that that provides you. A lot of what I do has to do with muscle spasticity, it’s hard to test that without feeling it.”
