TelaDoc Medical Services Inc. has started selling telephone consultations with physicians located throughout the United States.[@@]
The Dallas company says it believes its new service, which relies on the participation of a national physicians’ association, is the first national, 24-hour-a-day service that provides access to primary care doctors.
The doctors should be able to handle about 70% of the cases over the telephone and call any prescriptions that might be necessary in to patients’ pharmacies, TelaDoc says.
