Ask Us Guidelines
We remind you that no online service can substitute for your doctor or health care provider when you have questions. The information provided here is necessarily general and non-specific in nature and is not designed to take the place of a consultation with a health care professional. While we will try to point you in the right direction, you should always meet with a health care professional when you think you have a specific health problem. If the problem is urgent or you suspect it is serious, do not wait for an email reply. Consult a medical practitioner in person right away.
