TalktoaDoc.org Launch Allows Patients to Talk to Doctors Online Using a Webcam
Date:7/8/2008

LOUISVILLE, Ky., July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Today marks the day that doctors have finally embraced the technology age with the official launch of TalktoaDoc.org. This new site allows patients to talk to doctors online using text (keyboard), voice (microphone), and/or video (webcam). This gives patients a more convenient and interactive way to communicate with doctors from a computer. TalktoaDoc.org is unique in that all conversations are done live, not through message boards.

TalktoaDoc.org gives patients the first minute of the conversation free and is $2.98 per additional minute thereafter. This allows patients to get even simple questions answered without having to pay a high flat fee. No insurance? No problem. TalktoaDoc.org does not go through insurance companies so patients know the cost up front. This new innovative service does not intend to replace regular doctor visits but supplement them. Doctors can be found online at any time, not just during set hours.

Patients will be able to choose from the following departments to direct their questions: All Departments (for general questions), Cardiology, Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, OB/GYN, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, and Surgery.

Other medical advice sites require patients to pay a yearly membership fee and a high flat fee up front before they can even talk to a doctor. These sites also have doctors who do not carry medical malpractice insurance. TalktoaDoc.org does not require any money up front, gives patients the first minute of the conversation free, and requires all doctors to carry medical malpractice insurance and be licensed in the state in which the patient is located.

TalktoaDoc.org donates a portion of its net proceeds to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in honor of its founder's brother who died of the disease in 1994. For more information, please visit http://www.talktoadoc.org.
