Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

I have had the symptoms for three days.

Do you prescribe meds if warranted
Eye Doctor: Dr. Chip, Doctor (non-eye specialty) replied 7 months ago

Sorry--no

That would be both illegal and malpractice

What is the advantage of having a consult. I am in between medical coverage and have to wait until January 1st for my coverage to begin.If your advice is that I need medication it seems that I have to go into a dr's office

What we do on this site is take medical questions and offer analysis and information about the problem

This is not a telemedicine site

But if you'll give me a photo I can at least determine whether or not you need a prescription and that may not be the case
