The Future of Doctor Visits is Now

Re-examining today’s world, “Back to the Future, Part II” proves to be surprisingly foreshadowing, especially when Marty McFly's calls Needles and his supervisor via video conferencing. Nearly 26 years ago, video conferencing was just that — a phenomenon of the very distant future.
