Dallas, Feb. 18, 2012 -- One of the newest dimensions in health care is embodied in the service offered by Ask-the-Dr. With the winter season bringing its usual rash of complaints related to flus, coughs, sore throats and other cold-related ailments, Ask-the-Dr offers the convenience of health care access via the telephone and Internet.


Through over-the-phone medical advice and online medical consultations, subscribers can get direction on how to handle problems such as congestion and other flu symptoms, and general health issues. Doctors are available at 1.877.596.3502 or by visiting www.ask-the-dr.com at any time, any day of the year.


Although this Ask-the-Dr service provides the convenience of consulting an online doctor, it is not meant to replace the traditional health care setting altogether. So, while common conditions, such as acid reflux, constipation and joint pains, for instance, can usually be handled remotely by an Ask-the-Dr physician, if the online doctor determines that the member needs an in-depth in-person examination, he may refer the patient to a traditional health care setting. Likewise, because Ask-the-Dr is a telemedicine service provider, members aren't able to have flu shots, for example, administered to them through this service.


The issuing of prescriptions by email, or online prescriptions, is determined per individual case. The consulting doctor will only consider issuing a prescription if he has obtained adequate details to accurately diagnose a patient. Under no circumstances are DEA-controlled medications prescribed.


Ask-the-Dr is not online health insurance, nor are the services provided considered covered services under any health insurance policy. Ask-the-Dr is independent of any health plan, and all charges are the member's responsibility.
