This is not a telemedicine website, unfortunately.

The website is only meant to provide medical education and answers specific to your questions only.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

I know that’s not what you want to hear right now.

I would be happy to answer any other medical concerns you have.

A prescription of any kind here would be both illegal and malpractice.

The website is not authorized to issue any prescriptions or notes or referrals.

I am just a messenger, I am afraid.

Sorry again.
