MUSC recently opened an endocrinology telemedicine clinic at Tidelands Health Medical Park West, 4040 Hwy 17 Bypass, Suite 306, Murrells Inlet, part of Waccamaw Hospital. Teleconsultations are offered on a weekly basis. This service helps to overcome geographical obstacles by bringing specialty endocrine care into communities where specialists can see patients more quickly. During the visits, patients consult with a board-certified endocrinologist face-to-face via secure video conferencing. A certified medical assistant takes the patient's vitals in person and the results are instantly provided to the endocrinologist, allowing him/her to provide the same level of care using telemedicine technology as they would during an in-person visit.Learn more about telehealth at MUSC.
