Customer Question
I want to know...

I want to know if I should take my 11 yro son to ER or if he can keep sleeping. Pulse ox 91 (we are in Denver on a trip from ny) and it was 97 before he went to sleep.

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

For my 11 yro son. He has a fever. And seems very tired. Breathing seems a little shallow

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had a fever? Do you have any respiratory symptoms?

Second day of fever. Some shallow breathing. Noticeable mostly when he is sleeping

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

He has not been diagnosed w asthma but seems to get breathing troubles when he gets a could. My husband has been sick, lying on couch for days and I am worried my son has this too

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

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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!!
