Capstone Express, a telemedicine clinic, opens Tuesday in the Anchorage 5th Avenue Mall. A medical clinic opened Tuesday in a small space on the ground floor of the Anchorage 5th Avenue Mall, but there are no doctors inside. They appear in exam rooms on a computer screen. The walk-in office is the Capstone Clinic medical group’s first foray into telemedicine — the use of technology to provide health care from a distance, according to owner Dr. Wade Erickson, who specializes in family medicine and obstetrics.

“The goal is access. It’s all about access,” Erickson said. “Our goal is to bring health care as close to the people as we possibly can.”
