Customer Reviews

I'll give it another try...

I really love the idea behind this, and based on other reviews, I thinks it's worth another try. The very first question I asked was answered with the Dr spending half of the answer correcting a few terminology errors due to my lack of a medical degree. My question wasn't written so poorly that the Dr couldn't understand what I was saying. 150 characters didn't give me much to describe in exact detail. Even the Dr's subject line was meant to put me in my place. So, other than the snarky answer, I think this app could definitely be useful in the future. When I've had two kids snotting, coughing, sneezing, and laying on me with fevers for over a week, the last thing I need is for the person I'm reaching out to for help to make me feel like an idiot.

Still a work in progress

Was a little frustrated at first having some issues logging in and finding my answer but then after getting the answers from three nice Doctors, I was very happy. I combined the answers from all three and they are all correct answers. I have been in medical field for years and know different Drs give different answers and three heads are better than one for advice. All the answers confirmed the actions I took. Keep improving the app and will give a five.

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. :)
