telehealthI wear heels, every day. I am 5’3, so you can understand how life changing a few extra inches can be. Picture this: I am walking into a department store to purchase a handbag that I shouldn’t be buying with black, peep-toe pumps on and I trip. I have a bruised ego and possibly a sprained ankle, but I am way too busy for a doctor visit today. Thankfully, I don’t have to; all I need is my tablet.
