You read right! Psychologist Phil McGraw who is best known for giving on-point advice on his successful television show “Dr. Phil” announced, early this month, his participation in the new online company “Doctor on Demand”. This corporation permits people in the United States to have one-on-one consultations with board certified doctors—via a smartphone or computer camera. Countless of doctors and persons have wanted something like this to undertake the Internet, and it has finally occurred!
The charge for each video chat appointment is $40 USD. Currently, their website has a list of over 1,000 doctors to choose from. The site is not recommended for individuals who are suffering from chronic health-threatening conditions; it is more suitable for persons who have less complex medical issues, such as colds, infections, rashes and etc.
At the moment, “Doctor on Demand” is only available for individuals living in California, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Texas and in 9 other states. It has been reported that each doctor has been properly trained for online consultations and that they are more than ready to serve anybody who is in current need of medical advice.
Dr. Phil is very excited about this new project that he truly believes in. Mr. McGraw hopes that this new way of doctor and patient interaction will catch-on around the globe and become an everyday thing.
