Try repeating it: Each of us chooses the ones we feel we can handle best, and some get lost in the shuffle. We also ignore questions that aren't clear or seem inappropriate. I also don't know how to pull up your previous question -- i would if i could. Maybe there will be a way to do this sometime. ...Read more

Personal choice: People enjoy being on healthtap, whether they be members or doctors, for a variety of reasons. It is a public site, and everyone gets to choose which activities they want to participate in. Some doctors take paid questions while others choose not to...

How does this site work? Why are you doctors volunteering to answer for free?

Its fun: Some people play sudoko, or solitaire. I personally like the mental challenges of the questions. The "patients" make me think, I look up different things, and continue learning. Plus, some of the questions, like yours, are just fun to answer. Thank you for asking. ...Read more

If i ask a medical question and different doctors have totally opposite answers how do I know who is right?

If i ask a medical question and different doctors have totally opposite answers how do I know who is right?

Can be confusing...: A patient can ask the question, worded differently, to see what the doctors say. She can look to see how many other doctors have similar opinions or agree with certain answers. She can go to the doctors' pages and read the doctors' answers to other questions, to help her decide which doctor to place her confidence in. Sometimes more than one answer is right (more than one way to do something). ...Read more
