Hi is anyone there. Can you please email me ur email and number?

Just to emphasize: What Dr. Rhoads said is correct. The proper way to use this forum is to pose any question in this area for a response from one of many qualified primary as well as specialty physicians but in limited fashion since we only have a certain field size for responses. The other way is to ask for a consultation of an on call physician (PRIME visit) or a specialist (CONCIERGE visit). Happy asking! ...Read more

My boyfriend has long emails with other women, how can I accept that they're just friends?

My boyfriend has long emails with other women, how can I accept that they're just friends?

Do you trust him?: This is a touchy subject for both of you. Have you & he discussed these women & the emails? I don't know how you can accept that they're "just friends" unless you trust him, and i don't know if you and he have earned each others' trust. Has he given you other cause to doubt him? And how did you discover these emails -- maybe by reading when he wasn't there? Trust can be a very tender thing. ...Read more

I found out my girlfriend was lying to me by reading through her emails, what do I do know?

Talk to her about it: People read emails of others frequently and relationships end, then another one begins via some social network connection. When your girlfriend finds out you have been spying on her she will probably feel some anger and resentment.
If you want the relationship to survive find a good therapist and start couples counseling. ...Read more

Are dr's on h.T. Willing to do phone or email consults to help point someone in the right direction medically?

Are dr's on h.T. Willing to do phone or email consults to help point someone in the right direction medically?

No: That is not the purpose of health tap . We don't replace the dr/patient relationship and part of that is a complete history and physical to make that diagnosis to get you on the right path. I'm sure if you look you might be able to find a free clinic in your area of you do not have insurance. Where i live they are often associated with churches. ...Read more

I keep getting emails from friends and family bout how bad ect is. I just don't know what to do anymore.  I'm at my wits end. Can anyone help me?

ECT is common : I would bet none of those emails are coming from medical professionals. I would trust the experience and care of those providing medical and mental health services to you. Ect is an effective and very common tool used in keeping those struggling with depression alive and well. ...Read more

Can docs be compensated by insurance for email with pts?

Unlikely: While insurance companies claim to want to lower costs many scoff at the idea of paying for phone or email consults. Many docs will just bill you directly. ...Read more

Doublecheck directionsfor VIT D250,000 units :Take 6 capsules orally as a single dose as directd. All at once?! Seemslike yes from init email 2 dr off

Quarter million: A quarter million units of vitamin D sounds like a HUGE dose. Six times that would be one and a half million units. Better check with the doctor before taking it... and ask why so much, compared to the usual doses that people take all the time. ...Read more

Should doctors email patients?

Should doctors email patients?

Why not?: Virtually every form of communication may be compromised (not private) in some ways, though certain forms of communication are easier to lose privacy than others. Conversations can be overheard, phone lines tapped or wireless ones received, and e-mails can be hacked into by others if they try hard enough. If a patient contacts me via email, i answer via email or phone. Do what seems right to you! ...Read more

Do you think I should send an email to my new psychotherapist to get background on each other?

Do you think I should send an email to my new psychotherapist to get background on each other?

It's complicated: The confidentiality requirements under state and federal law make normal email problematic for most therapists. It might be best to discuss your therapist's policy first (so you don't feel you are just being ignored), and see if s/he uses a secure email platform like healthtap. Also talk about issues you can discuss by email, response time, and if you would be billed for responses. ...Read more

Yesterday at the dentist something happened and I don't know if I should worry. can you please email me so I can give you more detail?

Call if worried: If you are concerned about something that happened at your dental appointment yesterday, call and ask if they can be more specific and if you should worry. In all likelihood, they would have told you yesterday if there was an issue, but the phone call with a specific question should hopefully put your mind at ease! ...Read more
