Customer Question
I do not have...

I do not have cell service where I work. can I do a Dr appointment for Bronchitis by phone conversation ( land Line )?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I have not seen my primary as I thought I would check to see if I could use this service first. Last year I did use this service for the very same issue. I have asthma so I use Pro Air as well as Advair.

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

I do not believe so. I have yearly visits with my primary as well as with a Pulmonary Dr as well. All was well in Sept of this year. I have had a cold for about two weeks with nasal drip, cough, and nopw it seems to have settled in my chest where I am wheezing. I have used Albuteral in my nebulizer- which has helped... but I am still tight in the chest

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the cough? Are you having any other symptoms?

About two weeks. I use honey and cough drops to control

have you tried over the counter mucinex or robitussin or delsyn cough medications? these could help

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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.
