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

Why are my questions not being answered is it because I use the free one?

We all answer: For free, there is no fee at least as I know for me. Sometimes the questions are out of our expertise and we skip, hoping that someone specialized for your question will answer it. Sometimes, the questions are pushed down in order so we don't get to see them. Sorry, but if I see your question and I feel comfortable with it, I always answer. ...Read more

Non-medical question: if you only bully bullies does that make you a bigger bully or a good person?

Non-medical question: if you only bully bullies does that make you a bigger bully or a good person?

Bullies: I agree with dr. Fowler. The process of "bullying" has 2 sides: the bully and the bullied. If you're overly occupied with either side, you still have a problem around bullying and may need help. Being a "good person" can take many forms. Perpetrating on another living being is not one of them -- and distracts you from the good you can do in the world (including help those who are bullied). ...Read more

How do I know these are real medical doctors on this app? Why would they give free medical advice?

Some do help out..: Checking on someone's credential is not that hard and there are software/ways to know whether or not someone does have a medical license or not. As you probably know, pharmacists, psychologists, phlebotomists, physical therapists etc...Are also on this website. I guess it is hard to be 100% sure, thus when in doubt, check with your own doc. Many docs do want to help out---i do. Good luck to you. ...Read more
