Ask The Doctor
For years now, people have been turning to the web to self diagnose. It can be something as small as a cut on your finger, a phantom bug bite, or chronic pain and everyone runs to WebMd. This would be an ideal attempt at solving the problem, but this site is notorious for being exceptionally vague and covering everything under the umbrella of a ‘headache’ per se but nothing personal pertaining directly to the patients issue.
This is where AsktheDoctor.com comes into play. Whether it is because of a person’s busy schedule or limited healthcare options, it’s important for people to have access to doctors and this information. This brilliant idea allows users to have direct access to real physicians who can answer various health questions at no cost.
Incredibly, AsktheDoctor.com has already built up a database of over 10,000 questions and continues to grow. Aside from trending among patients that have limited access to healthcare, a younger demographic is benefitting from this by being able ask questions without having to be uncomfortable asking a parent whether it is regarding sex, or whatever it is that kids are getting into these days.
