Hello my name is***** am a board-certified physician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. Can you tell me please, are you experiencing any symptoms at all such as burning with urination or pain at the tip of your penis, or tenderness/discomfort of your testicles?

She said she took to 2 500mg zithromax pills. Is that the correct treatment?
Doctor: Richard Han, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago

Very good, thank you for that information. I understand, chatting here is fine, JA always automatically offers the phone service. The standard treatment for chlamydia and sexual partners of those diagnosed with chlamydia is a single dose of oral antibiotic, azithromycin 1000 mg. Usually people are treated for gonorrhea at the same time with an injection in the muscle of an antibiotic called ceftriaxone, but if your girlfriend tested negative for that then that would not be necessary. Can I help with anything else today?

Doctor: Richard Han, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago

Yes, what your girlfriend took is correct, provided that she was positive ONLY for chlamydia and NOT gonorrhea.

Any other questions?

Can you write the prescription, or do I need to see a local doctor?
Doctor: Richard Han, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago

I'm sorry but JustAnswer does not prescribe prescription services. You would need to see a local doctor or see someone in a walk in clinic like urgent care or Planned Parenthood. Any other questions?

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.
