Today’s WSJ has an article on the nascent service of conducting limited medical consultations via the web and e-mail. In a previous post I noted that there are now unified guidelines for physician-patient e-mail.
Services such as Med Help International, MayoClinic.com, and Askadoctor.com are all fee-based, and are often used as a interim step between an in-person doctor visit and a phone call for a second opinion.
