Dr. Elias Milgram runs a pediatrics practices in Aventura, FL and recently joined the CellScope Oto Pioneer Program. Originally from Venezuela, Dr. Milgram has been treating young patients for over 39 years. As a CellScope Oto Pioneer, he has had an opportunity to learn some new tricks, principally turning his smartphone into a connected, digital otoscope!
We recently interviewed Dr. Milgram to learn more about his experience with the Oto and mobile health in general. Here’s what the doctor had to say:
CellScope: How did you hear about the CellScope Oto?
Elias Milgram: I was forwarded an e-mail by a friend/colleague.
CS: What led you to join the Oto Pioneer Program?
EM: I have always been involved in teaching about ear exams and ear pathology. This was a great opportunity to do that with my patients!
CS: How have you integrated the Oto in your practice?
EM: Since receiving it, I have been using it with many of my patients.
CS: What do your patients think of the Oto?
EM: The parents are all amazed by the technology and being able to see inside their children’s ears!
CS: How has the Oto impacted your practice so far?
EM: Positively, without a doubt!
CS: From your perspective, how do you see mobile health technology changing healthcare in the next 5 or 10 years?
EM: I can foresee many useful apps making the practice of medicine easier and facilitating patient communication.
And to that we say, let’s make it happen! Thank you, Dr. Milgram, for sharing your experience so far!
