Customer Question

Im worried about something serious Im hoping its not , everyone at my work has been sick but i have not, I have used one of those e cigarette things to try and reduce chewing but I think Im stopping that today and just go with gum but what do you think sir?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: it has hurt to take a deep breath for a couple days but today it hurts more when i try to breath deeply
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Doctors generally expect a deposit of about $34 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

This needs exam for diagnosis.

It sounds muscular.

However, a lung problem must be ruled out [clot to the lung] by exam and testing.

You also need an EKG.

See a doctor now.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

WAIT A SEC I was under the impression it was 5 dollars for an opinion over the computer and the additional 30 for further review. Why would I pay more than it costs me to go to the doctor? If you charge me the 30 dollars I will not be able to afford to go see a dr. Your site said it would be 5$ and for additional consult then I would have to pay for additional info. You did not give me any info that I had not spoken with a dr over the phone with. Can you please allow me to pass this one time? This seems like a great service but to be charged more than a Dr. Visit for info that is of no help is crazy. I would never agree to that.
I would greatly appreciate it if you can understand this. I understand your running a business and it is a business i will use for sure in the future but to charge me for info that Ive obtained from 3 Drs this morning ( I need to go get checked) Is crazy

Experts have nothing to do with what you set up with Just answer.

We log into the site and give answers.

If you give ma a positive rating, I am paid per rating by just answer. I have nothing to do with the money you have with them or anything else.

Customer service can help you with that.

Please see that I am paid for my time and expertise with a positive rating on the rating scale above.

contact CS for any problems.

However, I will point out that you can ask a few more questions here if you decide to continue.

I want my account cancelled IMMEDIATELY and I will give you a rating for your time RIGHT after you get me a phone number to contact your billing department. THIS IS A JOKE
