Hello are you there

Just answering.Please give me a couple of minutes.

Expert:  Dr.Amita replied 20 days ago.

I understand your concern regarding expenses of visiting a doctor.

Unfortunately we cannot provide a script for you.It is a felony to write a script without personally seeing a patient and both patient and doctor can be prosecuted for doing so.

We can only guide you in the right direction.

I will suggest a couple of things for you.

If you have insurance please check up the website of your insurance as most insurance companies have network doctors who give discounted rates for insured of those companies.

Other way is to get into a free clinic.You can find one near you by using this link.

I understand that this may not be the answer you were looking for or expecting but I have to be ethical and truthful and I hope that you will not hold this against me while rating the answer.
