As a physician Board Certified in Internal Medicine, I see two levels of value in the virtual practice of Medicine, and HealthTap is the ideal medium to champion the virtual medicine movement. First, HealthTap is a perfect resource for those lifestyle-type questions that just don't require an office visit. I enjoy answering those everyday questions about anything from breakfast choices to exercise regimens to making a smoothie. These questions can pop into your mind in a moment, and in the next moment could be gone, so it's nice to be able to answer these questions that people are inclined to post in that moment. Second, I find great importance in being able to field questions about symptoms, be them simple or complex. Truth be told, it's been suggested that as many as 33% of presentations to a doctor's office are for issues that can be successfully handled virtually. It's great to be able to handle these issues for patients in this virtual environment, be it by just giving advice or by prescribing medication or even ordering blood testing for future review. I would encourage you to read through my HealthTap feed or seek a consultation with me when I'm online, or post an Inbox consult for us to review at our leisure. It's a pleasure to be a part of your health maintenance team.

The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A female asked:
Pain after stent.: Is that area tender? Is there swelling? With this finding, you may want to follow-up with the vascular doctor who performed the procedure.
A 17-year-old female asked:
Dizziness.: This constellation of symptoms could represent labyrinthitis (most likely), vertigo (less likely) or Meniere’s disease (less likely). Labyrinthitis is similar to vertigo but originates from involvement of the inner ear by inflammation and infection, which would give you additional symptoms (headache, hot and cold flashes for example).
A 19-year-old female asked:
90,000 U.S. doctors in 147 specialties are here to answer your questions, provide medical advice, write prescriptions, and more.
