Patients commonly complain about the pace of healthcare— between hospital visits, appointments with specialists, and waiting rooms, the process of evaluation, diagnosis and treatment often seems slow. In recent years, telemedicine has allowed healthcare professionals to use telecommunications technology to share information, images, and more, remotely, improving care for patients in their homes, workplaces or assisted living facilities. To help bring healthcare forward, Toledo Physician Murthy Gokula has opened a simple and easy to use new Family Medicine & Geriatrics Connected holistic health care clinic, featuring patient-centered approaches, 24/7 (concierge) physician services, and telemedicine at 2230 W.
