Aurora, ON – Recently, a friend of mine telephoned me midday with a potential health crisis. She had been ill with gastric flu and unable to keep anything down for two days, lived alone and was wondering what to do. I was at home with two small children giving them their lunch when she called. What to do? Then it occurred to me, help was just a phone call away. My friend called telehealth and they provided practical advice and reassurance and follow up over the telephone and an expensive and lengthy visit to ER was avoided. Thank you, telehealth. I will be calling you again.
