Customer Question
Hi the top of my...
Hi the top of my dads finger just at the bottom of the nail on his middle finger has been sore for the past 5 months, it only swells up a little but he has to burst it every day an when he does a clear jelly looking liquid comes out, he has no idea what caused it in the first place. He's started going to an infrared sauna lately an he said when he come's out the top of his sore finger does be tingling a little, so I was just wondering if the sauna would be good for it or not? He's really stubborn an wont get it checked, cause I think he's afraid of doctors;) What would you think it might be and what advice would you give? Thanks

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
