The last place I lived was at least five hours away from any other 
major population 
center -- which means any good hospital. In that context, it would make 
perfect sense for a doctor in El Paso, Texas, to consult with a patient 
in Alpine, Texas, 4.5 hours away by car (and there are no commercial 
flights). I met one man who would drive the 4.5 hours every couple of 
months to get his heart checked because there was no cardiologist 
closer. I think the distance medical treatment has real possibilities in 
that context.
