The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way physicians are seeing healthy patients these days. With the power of technology, most routine medical appointments can be carried out without setting foot in a medical office. And, when in-person visits are necessary, medical offices are taking new precautions to keep everyone safe.

Join us for an informative talk by Dr. Larry Leibowitz and Michael Turpin, Executive Vice President at USI Insurance Services, who will discuss how he structures telehealth visits and the effectiveness of telehealth visits in comparison to in-person visits. They will also look to answer the question, “is telehealth here to stay?”
