Customer Question
Lately I've been feeling...

Lately I've been feeling lightheaded and a burning sensation in my ears.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the burning? Are you experiencing any other discomfort?

It comes and goes. I think it started two months ago. My cheeks tend to tingle and feel numb sometimes. My right ankle is always sore.

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

I think I'm anemic

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.
