Online Medical Diagnosis

This web site does not provide medical advice or medical diagnosis. Online medical diagnosis refers to the practice whereby web sites make live doctors available in chat rooms to answer questions and pose tentative diagnoses to symptoms. This web site does not offer this feature, and recommends that you seek prompt professional in-person medical advice from your local medical professional.

Nevertheless, online medical advice may be desired by people in some situations, such as with the issue of cost, embarassment of discussing symptoms or feelings, or practical issues with regard to transport. Some patients feel that they simply do not get enough time with their doctor in a face-to-face consultation, and may feel that they are left with no avenue to ask all their questions.

Although this web site does not provide this service, there are several vendors that do provide online medical advice.
