ConnectMD has proven time and again to be a very practical way to get timely information, clarification, or reassurance around cases. I frequently recommend it to colleagues as it consistently gives helpful answers, in a timely manner, and saves myself and the patient time by usually being able to avoid a full consultation visit (and the wait time involved in that) to answer a simple question. I sometimes find the information is even more helpful than a full consultation, because it allows a more direct, back and forth conversation, as you can clarify points about the case and exact recommendations in real time.
