Customer Question
Hi we were disconnected...

Hi we were disconnected How does this work? How much does it cost in total to speak o a doctor? And is it by Skype?

Doctor's Assistant: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Doctor's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require). What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

By skype? Or phone?

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

By Skype or phone?

Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

I am sorry you are having these issues

pain on the left upper abdomen below the ribs tends to be from inflammation of the stomach, usually from excessive stomach acid production.

certain foods like alcohol, spicy foods, fried foods, fatty foods, large meals, black pepper can cause worse stomach inflammation and gastritis.

often times stomach acid reducers like omeprazole or prilosec or zantac and gavascon stomach acid reducers can help decrease stomach acid.

avoiding carbonation and sodas can help

you may have to cut out milk and gluten and white flour out of your diet and see if that helps decrease bloating.

have you tried warm towels and compresses to help your tear ducts?

if you accept additional phone consult services fees, we can talk by phone

let me know if you have questions.

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.
