    Have any of you used the newest type of doctor's visit - Online video chat?

    More and more clinics are offering these for simple questions where you just need to ask a doctor a question but don't really need to drive into the office, park, walk, wait, etc. for what can get done in 5 minutes.

    Have you used these? Would you if your clinic offered it?

      If it is something simple like describing a side effect and getting a simple recommendation or "that's normal, don't worry about it", I would do it. Serious things are still going to need to be done in front of the oncologist though.

      There was a piece on the news in my town about these. I thought it was a good idea for the small things that might be a little too much for a phone call but not a big enough issue to go to the office for.
