Sherpaa doctors ask themselves two questions:
Can I diagnose and treat this issue by asking the right questions ordering the right tests, and following up with you? If I can’t, how can I best coordinate your care, refer you to the right person/place, and follow up with you?
A 12 minute office or video visit is one small snapshot in time. Health issues evolve over time requiring new updates and confirmation that you should stay the course or change strategies. You wouldn’t solve problems at work with 12 minute meetings every few weeks with your team. It’s about time we expect doctors to work with us and solve problems like we do at work and at home.
