Physicians for Patient Protection member, Dr.  Nidal Moukaddam is featured in a story on NPR discussing the future of telehealth, with a specific focus on voice-only telehealth.

Specifically, Dr. Moukaddam discusses the downsides of voice-only telehealth and emphasizes how this channel of healthcare does not allow her to effectively connect with patients. Additionally, the piece underscores how voice-only telehealth does not give physicians the opportunity to give physical exams and therefore they are unable to access whether a patient has tremors, skin discoloration, alcohol on their breath, etc. Within the article, Dr. Moukaddam is credited as an associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Baylor College of Medicine and a member of Physicians for Patient Protection.
