I have some health problems and I need to find some second opinion on the internet... Is there any site that can provide me some kind of doctor contact and second opinion?

Hi :

I much prefer the medical info at
http://www.medicinenet.com to webmd . Also, I have been
paying for a medical newsletter for about 10 yrs put out
by a "wellness" MD, named Julian Whitaker . IF you send
me details about your health problems by "Private Message"
I will research those 10 yrs of Issues for what Dr
Whitaker recommends !?
For the very Best in Life :

I believe he is out of the country, so the Mayo clinic is of little help.

maybe you should tell us more details, :)


This is a bit personal and not something that should be discussed here.

Hi, folks.

I've been doing some research on this. Here's what I found:

WebMD: There's a lotto like about this popular, all-around medical information site. Slideshows,such as this one on weight loss,offer tips on leading a healthy lifestyle. The Symptom Checkerwizard helps you describe what hurts and suggests possible causes. You cansearch for any drug and find information.

But my medical adviser (and sister-in-law) Dr. Vicky Prager,MD, wasn't impressed. She found that it concentrated too much on eye-grabbingheadlines and sensationalist stories.

The Free Dictionary: This dictionary search enginecontains a special medical dictionary, which provides definitions from TheAmerican Heritage Stedman's Medical Dictionary and Dorland'sMedical Dictionary for Health Care Consumers. The definitions are generallyconcise and clear, and impressed Dr. Prager with their accuracy.

Mayo Clinic: Thefamous research group gears its site mostly to medical professionals andstudents, but it also provides useful health information forlaypeople. Here you can look up diseases, symptoms, drugs (and herbalsupplements), and even first aid instructions. Like WebMD, it providesall-around medical advice, but it comes off more as a serious advisor than asplashy entertainer.

American Heart Association:If you're mostly worried about your ticker, this is the site to visit. Here youcan read up on high blood pressure, strokes, and other cardiovascular problems,as well as the lifestyle choices that affect them.

Wikipedia: You alreadyknow about this one--the first site people go to when they want to find outabout almost anything. Yes, it has a reputation for questionable accuracy, butnot everyone agrees with that reputation. Dr. Prager told me that she's "Alwaysamazed at how much valuable stuff is there."
