When a mother was worried her child’s stomach pains might be appendicitis, she opened an app on her phone and was connected to Keith Algozzine.
The head of a growing concierge medicine business called United Concierge Medicine, Algozzine is a board certified physician assistant who still practices emergency medicine when he can. So he asked the mother to connect via video and walked her through a physical exam of her child: Does it hurt here? Does it hurt there? Now what about here? He was able to deduce from the child’s answers that it wasn’t appendicitis.
