This is insane. BTW it looks like it isn't operative in NC.

Fred, it appears to me to be legal in North Carolina, although the Medical Board could potentially hold accountable physicians who treat patients in North Carolina without a legitimate examination. Reimbursement is another issue, and will depend on the payer. Those who self-pay can purchase this service, at some risk; and the physician is also taking risks. I agree with you that this is insane.

Did it for over a year and was very unhappy with the results.

Obviously, Billy, I don't think this mode of practice is safe unless it is under very circumscribed conditions.
