  • As a doctor myself, i am wondering how do you make a diagnosis without examining the patient? All doctors know that after history taking, physical examination is the next corner stone in diagnosing and treating a patient. The treating doctor wont even know the vital signs of their patients with this system. how safely can you treat a patient that way?
