What's New in Version 4.11
* Various bug fixes
Informative, reliable, intuitive use
Love, love, love this app! It connects you to physicians online. You can ask any health-related questions from anywhere, anytime - knowledgeable, caring doctors answer within minutes. The interface is very intuitive and easy to navigate. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Thank you for creating such a wonderful app. :)
Often a waste of time, unfortunately
Occasionally helpful, BUT:
1. The MD's often fail to read the questions carefully, so the answers can be completely off the mark.
2. Sometimes the answer is,"See your doctor." So why bother with this site?
3. Sometimes the answers are from someone with minimal qualifications, e.g. a psychiatrist answering a question about an infectious disease
4. Sometimes the answers are ridiculously delayed. I just got a response and an "agree" to a question I asked 6 months ago. (And what was their brilliant answer? "See your doctor." You'd think they would be embarrassed to put their names on something like that, but . . .)
Ive had two family members receive the answer to their elusive medical condition by using healthtap and every time I use the app, things appear better organized and the information more relevant. The UI is one of the best on any app.
