Can I just send you a photo from my iPhone?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

you can send it to

but administration can take some time to forward them to me.

easier to upload here directly from a computer

I understand how to attach a photo to an email, my point is that I have already sent the photos to the same address that you are suggesting. Can I expect a response soon?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

most likely it will take a few more hours for administrators to forward me the photo

best to upload it here from your computer which is faster.

Not interested in waiting, would have been easier to go to a doctors office. If you so inclined to take a look at my pictures I'd appreciate it, otherwise I will find another avenue. Thought it would be easier to use an on line service.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

you don't have to wait if you can upload the photos here on this chat interface.

Can I expect an answer?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

a red bump could be a ganglion cyst or a bone spur or a synovial cyst.

you need a hand xray and ultrasound scan of the area to get more information about what it might be

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I already know that as I indicated in my first correspondence. Why would this condition require an X-ray or an ultrasound? That seems to be a bit of over kill.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

I can't see your finger.

I can't know what your red bump looks like

I don't know where on your finger it is.

what question do you have for me?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
i sent you pictures that clearly show where it is, I clearly defined what finger it was on in my first correspondence. It is obvious to me that there is no human answering my question. First time I ever tried a virtual medical solution and I am very disappointed.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

administration still hasn't forwarded the photo to me.

I told you it sometimes takes many hours to do this.

I am a doctor here trying to help you.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
