I was browsing the internet for some answers regarding a general ailment I had and came across several websites that look legitimate, and offer a real doctor's advice for a small fee, between $20-$40. It takes about 15-30 minutes for an answer.
Obviously, I would never had met this doctor, not know much about him or her (aside what I could garner from an internet search) and I am wondering if anyone has availed of this or what anyone's opinion of this is.
Is this legitimate? Or would I be as wise to type in my symptoms to a "symtom checker" page that many healthcare websites provide? Won't I end up having to see a doctor in person, in the end, anyway, if I don't feel better?
