Why does it feel like that, what should I do, etc?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I hate this service... I will cancel, I should have just used my doctor app... you guys... just push money round every corner. I am a professional and will pay but not like this. Shoddy and shammy. Sorry. Wasting my time.
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 10 months ago

I think you are seeing site automation.

I did not suggest a phone call, I don't even do them.

Or any other pop up has nothing to do with me. I log in to answer questions as you log in to ask them.

Would you like to continue just with me?

I have an answer for you and you can ask more if needed after that.

Its okay... I will go on my doctor MD app...
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 10 months ago

OK.

I will notify customer service that you are not happy. And that you do not want to continue.

I am a double board certified US doctor with 25 years of experience. I could give you a list of possibilities here, and recommendations based on safety, standard of care , and forefront medicine.

If I don't here from you in a few minutes, I'll send this on. Please remember that experts log in and use the format as you do and we do our best.

Ok thank you... if you would like to share that would be fine... feel like wasted 30 minutes. But i appreciate your sincerity.
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 10 months ago

Well, any format takes getting used to. We answer questions. This is not a site to replace your doctor's visit. Diagnosis requires exam and we an not examine you. I am here to help people outside of the doctor physician relationship with the extent of my experience and knowledge, giving answers.

Ok with you?

Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 10 months ago

There are a number of possibilities for this symptom.

Sore throat from viral infection. Most common.

Strep throat, unusual in an adult but possible. Often gets better after 3 or 4 days but is severe until that time, has a fever typically, pus on the tonsils, and lumps in the neck, sides and back or under the jaw. This requires antibiotics.

Acid reflux. Persistent sore throats without other explanation are often undiagnosed acid reflux. This requires prompt antacid treatment , and careful follow up.

More serious throat infections, such as epiglottitis or cellulitis of the throat. These can put a person in the intensive care unit if not addressed.

If you are very ill you need attention now.

If not, exam asap, and consideration of the above by your doctor, and exam accordingly, along with testing. Strep culture or raid strep test, for example.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Also, please click a positive rating on the rating scale. [This must be done manually]. In fact, a 5 rating squares me with just answer and allows me to provide prompt and accurate service to you, but does not increase your cost. You are rating me and my answer, not the site. And, I will be here for any follow up needed. If you are not happy yet, let me know, rate later.

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.
