What Customers are Saying:

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

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

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!!

Second opinion] I am under PEP treatment for possible HIV
I am under PEP treatment for possible HIV exposure about 14 days ago. I am having blood work done to monitor my kidney/liver functions and I am concerned about a drop in my WBC as it may be an early indication of HIV infection. My baseline (3 days after possible exposure) was 7.3 total WBC and my new total WBC is slightly low at 4.44. My lymphocytes are at 23% (up from only 15% on baseline report) and my neutrophils are high at 66% (down from baseline at 79%). The total WBC count concerns me because I don't see many causes other than sever infections, namely leukemia and hiv, as causing a low count. The lab report shows normal range as 5-10.0. Is this concerning or possible indicator of hiv infection? It seems strange that it would drop that much in ten days to below normal levels. I am very stressed but I do get sleep, eat well and am working out. Thanks for your help. … read more
