NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Midtown Medical Center (MMC) has announced that current patients now have access to a new telemedicine care platform, via mobile phone or computer to speak with an MMC doctor at no additional cost. Telemedicine gives patients real-time access to medical professionals and healthcare providers during the coronavirus outbreak, all from the comfort of their home.
The following statement was released by Dr. Mark Schwaiger, CEO of Midtown Medical Center:
"At Midtown Medical Center, we see telemedicine as a way to curb the spread of COVID-19.

We believe it's our sworn duty to provide for our patients, partners, and professionals with safe healthcare options during the COVID-19."
Medical professionals and healthcare providers will be able to evaluate patients remotely, in real-time, for their initial medical consultation. This allows patients to receive personalized medical care from any location with Wi-Fi or a high-speed cellular connection, reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19.
