“I was supposed to hop on a plane, but I felt a bad sore throat coming on … Instead of taking off more time from work, I simply shut the door to my office and saw a doctor online … Within 10 minutes I had gotten a prescription antibiotic called into the pharmacy down the street … This was high-definition video. If I’d wanted to, I could have read the documents on the doctor’s wall.”
