Customer Question

Extreme sore throat (hurts to swallow), enlarged uvula with one white spot, and coughing up phlegm that has an infection taste. Symptoms have lasted over a week, the cough is getting better, but my sore throat is not.
JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?
Customer: Not that I can think of.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.
