When someone calls a friend who is sick to see how he's doing and to wish him a refuah shleima, is that technically a fulfillment of mitzvahs bikur cholim?

  • Partially, see Minchas Yitzchak 2:84 ,an actual visit is considered bikur cholim, on phone seems more like a tovas hacholeh which is also something, but not complete bikur cholim
