Herbal Medicine consultations continue!
Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, I am able to continue to 'see' patients for herbal medicine consultations. It's definitely not as good as face to face but better than nothing. I'm using a mixture of telephone, Skype, Zoom or WhatsApp. The video calls have the advantage that I get some sense of what you look like today, and you can see me, but sometimes also come with technical hitches such as speech delays or pauses in the conversation. If it all goes badly wrong, we can always fall back on the old fashioned telephone.
Consultations follow the same pattern as before with first visits and repeats taking approximately the same length of time. I can then make up medicines after we have finished the call. If I feel that there is an urgent need for a physical examination I will have to refer you to your GP.
