Health Tap: A Unique Way to have a Virtual Consult or Office Visit

About two or more years ago, I joined HealthTap, an interactive Web site, in which users can gain free medical advice from doctors in various specialized areas of medicine by posing their questions on the site.

The mission of HealthTap is to measurably prolong the life expectancy of humankind and help everyone Feel Good by providing immediate access to top medical experts and their trusted health advice anytime, anywhere.

Over the last few years, I have been responding to questions from all over the country and even all over the world about various mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, perinatal mood disorders, sexual issues and relationship problems.

According to my most recent perusal of the site, I have helped 273,699 people since I started using some free time to respond to questions regarding mental health. I have created four checklists to provide tips for dealing with anxiety and coping with stress, and I have a following of 254 people, as well as 176 medical colleagues.

All in all, it’s been an wonderful way to share my areas of specialization and I’ve enjoyed this pro bono work and volunteer opportunity.

Most recently, HealthTap has created a new service in which patients can (for a small fee)
gain virtual consults and office visits with medical specialists. I have decided to participate in order to give my own patients the opportunity to do virtual consults in-between sessions or if distance is prohibitive. Additionally, this feature allows me to consult with patients all over the world. (Note: nationally I can only provide virtual consults with Illinois residents due to my state licensure restrictions).
