I'm an internal medicine trained physician who thinks that Healthtap provides an excellent opportunity to help people better understand their respective health issues. I'm happy to help forge that understanding working with people.

The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 34-year-old female asked:
Several ways: You could sign up for the paid HealthTap membership and then set up a live consultation with a physician through HealthTap. Otherwise going to a primary care physician would be another common way to coordinate basic lab testing.
A 78-year-old male asked:
Very complicated: This type of situation warrants reaching out to his PCP or urologist for coordinating care. If otherwise unable to reach either resource seek and in person urgent care visit. If he is passing clots, he may have to go to the ER to flush out his bladder to prevent obstruction.
