Each week, I receive dozens of e-mails from followers of our social media sites (Twitter, YouTube, FaceBook, Your Health First, and Liver Specialists of Texas) seeking assistance regarding some form of liver disease they are suffering from, or one of their relatives. I usually respond back with some direction they should head in, or ask if they are available to travel to Houston for a face-to-face evaluation.
As technology improves, the availability of videoconferencing has never been easier. Working with Houston based software developers, there is now the opportunity to participate in a second opinion program with experts in liver disease in our practice. Because there is such variability in everyone’s home or work connectivity to the internet, we plan on supplying you with the needed technology to connect.
The savings of not having to travel to Houston, hotel and food charges, lost wages, and time, makes this an economically sensible alternative.
Second opinions in all aspects of liver disease will be available, including abnormal liver tests, fatty liver disease, hepatitis C, hepatitis B, cirrhosis, liver cancer, alcohol related liver disease, liver transplant, hemochromatosis, and autoimmune disease of the liver. The cost for this service will be based on a minimum of a 30 minute consultation, allowing for additional time at 15 minute increments. Medical records, x-ray reports and films, biopsies, and past consultations will be reviewed.
Feedback on this program is important to us. Please let us know what you think.
