The authors have done an excellent job presenting the current knowledge of the potential of telemedicine to radically change the practice of otolaryngology–head and neck surgery. The authors' arguments for and against the clinical application of this technology do not attempt to predict success or failure of telemedicine, but wisely accept the fact that telemedicine will become part of the everyday practice for the otolaryngologist. Telemedicine will become another practical communication tool to enhance the patient-physician relationship, which remains the cornerstone of medicine.
