Dr. Sclafani and colleagues have recently published a groundbreaking study in how telemedicine can be enhanced to provide a more detailed examination of the nose, ears and face. By identifying areas for improvement in telemedicine noted during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Sclafani has developed a simple and cost-effective technique to use telemedicine which enhances patient convenience while also allowing him to make a more accurate diagnosis and develop more detailed treatment plans for his patients.
