    Does anyone do MDLive or know of anyone that does to compare to teladoc?

      Just finished my first day on Teladoc. Saw 6 consults while I was already moonlighting. 5 phone at $23/consult, and 1 video consult at $28. Average time per consult was about 6 minutes, and they were quite easy, basically prescribing cold meds.

        What are the liability issues with this setup? Are you personally liable, or is it the parent company (Teladoc) or both? Is this covered under your regular malpractice insurance or do you have a separate policy?

              It hurts but improving, thanks! Yeah I actually like teladoc, it seems similar to doing surveys for money, but I actually feel like I'm helping people and the patients seem grateful. I do have some concern that I will pushing antibiotics, but at least I'm aware of it. Are you credentialed in more than one state? I only have a MA license so debating if its worth it to get other states.

                Glad you are improving.  I'm licensed in 2 states. I considered adding more but the hassle of adding more wasn't worth it to me.  Also, if you don't live in the state you are licensed in, they slow your access to the consults to give the instate doctors first dibs.  So, I don't see Georgia consults as quickly as doctors in Georgia do.  Do not feel pressured to prescribe anything.  Teladoc will contact you if they think you are over-prescribing antibiotics.  My prescription rate is low, but my patient satisfaction is high.  I find many patients just need the reassurance of talking to a doctor.  Happy Teladocing!

                  Hmm.  Maybe I should sign my wife up.  Intriguing.  As a pulmonologist I might try to get in on the tobacco cessation portion.  Can you screen patients to your specialty?  Could I just cherry pick mild asthma exacerbations?

                    which state governs your liability exposure?

                      You can see the chief complaint before contacting the patient so in essence you can cherrypick
