My bf has a lot of diff health issues he needs addressed. Would healthtap prime b useful if he's uninsured&wants 2 consult w more than 1 kind of dr?

Sometimes helpful: A patient with multiple health issues must have a real-life doctor who can do a full exam. PRIME is useful for primary care issues that may not need an exam. PRIME is also good for temporary help when one's real-life doctor is unavailable. If a patient is traveling out-of-state she might be able to get help from a PRIME doctor in her vacation state, to take care of a problem before returning home. ...Read more

Dr. Randy Baker says on Healthtap that most adults need 5000 IU of vitamin D. Isn't that rather a lot? I am 67.

Dr. Randy Baker says on Healthtap that most adults need 5000 IU of vitamin D. Isn't that rather a lot? I am 67.

How often?: If you specify HOW OFTEN the recommendation was made then, there'd be more clarity to the question. There is no real tried & tested protocol yet for how much vitamin D should be taken by human beings, if it should really be supplemented at all. You need to get blood tested first. If your numbers are in need of replacement then, it becomes each physician's discretion how to do that safely. ...Read more

Can HealthTap replace my family physician, rheumatologist, endocrinologist and psychiatrist? What do the dr's think? Thank-you

Replace: Telemedicine is not a replacement for live doctor visits. We can help triage your issues and help guide you to the right care.
