All questions and answers are moderated and must be approved before posting.

We try to answer as many questions as we can. But the number of free questions we can answer on any day

depends on availability.

We post free questions that deal only with serious medical issues and meet our editorial guidelines. Questions must clearly describe your symptoms in-depth, your age, gender, medical history, medications you take, etc.. Questions must be well written, informative yet concise. Provide photos whenever possible. All images and free posts must be suitable for a General Viewing Audience.

Our mission is

  • To answer medical questions online free for people who cannot pay for doctors and those who
    simply don’t have access to doctors, and
  • To help provide answers to difficult and complex medical questions which otherwise would not be answered.

We favor questions which adhere to this criteria.

Answers can be short or lengthy, respond directly to the issue or raise issues or further questions (a word or two sometimes suffice) but they do need to be relevant and provide a positive contribution to the question.

8. Should I follow the advice or treatment ideas I receive.

No. Answers on Questiondoctors.com are just general in nature and do not replace your personal doctor. Answers are just complementary to help you better understand your issue and prepare you to meet with your doctor.
Responders who answer questions do so for informational, educational and social purposes – not as your medical advisor. You should follow advice and treatment only from your personal doctor who knows you and your medical history, and performs a complete evaluation and diagnosis of your problem in person.
