We've all seen the rise of small 'clinics' - usually in a small strip mall storefront or small building. With a couple of medical types with medial provided by or overseen by a Physicians Assistant (PA) or Nurse-Practitioner. These clinics may have X-ray equipment, but are pretty basic stuff. They are sometimes called Urgent Care Cneters. Of course, if what you have is really an emergent condition, they will happily dump you on the local ER. Where they have doctors, labs and stuff. So, an operation much like a 1950's doctors office - but with no doctor. I was waiting for these to show up in the larger malls. What I didn't expect to see was a 'medical kiosk' using "Tele-medicene" to provide 'care'. Yes - a walk-up kiosk in a mall with (I assume) staff with very minimal training. You get 'examined' digitally via a networked piece of equipment (otoscope, etc). (The Doctor is in, at downtown Anchorage mall) This is in town, mind you, not in Tititlik or Buckland (AK) . Anyone else seeing these pop up in their area?
