Need a referral for a Dr. Who knows about FQ Toxicity Syndrome -- either in Las Vegas or via virtual consult.?

Need a referral for a Dr. Who knows about FQ Toxicity Syndrome -- either in Las Vegas or via virtual consult.?

Good luck!: The fact that doctors often ignore the excellent advice not to use flouroquinolones as first-line therapy (in order not to contribute to resistant organisms, especially), does not speak well of us as a whole. Partly because the push to use it is colored by biased reports (Most research in this country is paid for by industry), and the other is the fear of being sued if safer first choices fail. ...Read more

After a virtual consult can health tap doctors order tests like xrays and mris and echos?

After a virtual consult can health tap doctors order tests like xrays and mris and echos?

Only on CONCIERGE: HealthTap virtual consultations come via 2 different premium services. On PRIME, no tests are ordered, as the visits are single events, not ongoing care (a PRIME doctor does not follow-up on medical issues, and thus would not order any tests). On CONCIERGE, the doctor generally has or will start an ongoing-care relationship with the patient, and thus may order tests and follow-up at a later visit. ...Read more

Lately I noticed that I would sometimes take a sudden deep breath involuntarily. Should I be concerned? Whom should I consult?

Ask your doctor!: Did you just describe a sigh or yawn? . ..And those certainly are not pathologic! Now, if there is pain with it... Or if you've got other symptoms, you might be able to build a case but you should ask yourself whether or not you've been anxious about something... Or particularly bored. If your doctor listened to your lungs, checked some lab, maybe a blood gas, he/she could reassure you further. ...Read more

I survived neuroblastoma and am currently seeking help with my current health. Is it best I consult a Dr familiar with neuroblastoma?

Wonderfull consultation with a great psyh. Dr. Recently. Consult....On a normal basis with a psych dr. Is a 15 minute appointment just too short?

Wonderfull consultation with a great psyh. Dr. Recently. Consult....On a normal basis with a psych dr. Is a 15 minute appointment just too short?

15 minute appts.: Dr. Fowler provided helpful info on the effects of managed care on psychiatry appointments. The 15-minute model is based on medication management only -- and I personally think it's too short for even that. If your goal is also psychotherapy, 15 minutes is even more woefully inadequate. Some support can be provided, but most of the time goes for checking side effects and writing prescriptions. ...Read more

Hydrocoele: A hydrocele is a collection of fluid in the scrotum. Most develop for no apparent reason, are harmless and can be left alone. If needed, a small operation can usually cure the problem. In a small number of cases, a hydrocele is due to an underlying problem with a testicle (testis).
