Top 10 Online Health consulting

As you know, getting an appointment with doctor can be really difficult. Sometimes you have to wait several days or even weeks before the doctor can meet you. But disease doesn't wait - and it should be treated as soon as possible. Of course, you can read the medical sites or talk to other people in the health communities, and find out what your symptoms mean and how to treat this disease. But it's not always the best solution and patient advices may not be appropriate for you.

Fortunately, thanks to the modern communication tools (instant messenger, voice and video chat) there is an opportunity to get professional medical care remotely - via the Internet using microphone and webcam. Of course, not in all cases, doctor can make a diagnosis without meeting the patient in the office, but at least she can give you really professional advice on how to start the treatment and to hold out before the appointment time comes.

In some cases, for example, for people living in remote areas far from civilization, the telemedicine in becomes the only available option.
