Customer Question
I have a pain...

I have a pain in my right side just below the waistline, it comes and goes and sensitive to the touch

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I've had it off and on, but it was worse this morning, I had a few spoons of oatmeal and didn't eat any more.

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

I have microscopic colitis and diarrhea so I have a history of bowl issues.

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.
