I don't know if I will be of much help but I have only consulted a doctor online in the WebMD forum. It was free and it wasn't really much help. He just told me to see my own doctor. I think its better to see a doctor in person but they don't always listen to everything you say. They are always rushed. By doing it online, I think there is less intimidation.The person can type out what is wrong without being so nervous. Does that make any sense to you?

i havent consulted a doctor online but what the person who first replied was true -- when u consult a doctor in person, they are often rushed. a fact that we doctors should take note and avoid. why are asking MD? are planning to put up an online clinic? that'd be cool, lol
