Yes. Telemedicine is safe and effective—as long as patients answer questions truthfully, accurately, and completely. Clinicians can only provide effective and safe when they have accurate, current information about your situation and medical history, regardless of whether you are using telemedicine or in-person visits.
Clinicians on YourMD.ca depend solely on the information provided in the questionnarie and during your televisit and via secure chat, phone, or video. They have no way of externally verifying the information you provide. In addition, if prescribed medicine, it’s necessary to read the personalized treatment plan your Clinician created before taking any medication. Only by reading this information in its entirety and fully understanding the content can you adequately weigh the risks and benefits of the treatment.
