Ask a Doctor

Choose a medical specialty and ask your question

There are several options available to you which are listed below:

1. Browse the medical forums

You do not need to register in order to simply browse previous questions posted on the medical forums. Please click on the forum link.

You can then select the particular forum that you wish to browse.

2. Ask a doctor

To use the ask a doctor feature you need to register on the doctor forums. You can either click on the forum registration link below or click on the register button on the forum pages to create an account (found on the top navigation bar).

Once you log in you will be sent to our forum index page.

You must then choose an appropriate forum to ask your question.

In order to ask a question you must click on the new topic button as shown in the image below (DO NOT CLICK 'ASK A DOCTOR' LINK AGAIN - IT WILL BRING YOU BACK HERE):

Please ask one question at a time and wait for a response before posting again.

Please remember that this feature is for free, we do not approve every question we receive. In order to make sure you have a better chance for getting an approval we kindly request that you read the forum rules. Not doing so creates an unnecessary burden on our doctors and could get you banned.


  1. Forum titles such as "Help!" / "stomach question" will NOT be approved. Put the main question in your title - this raises the chances that an appropriate health professional will identify and reply to your question.

  2. Emergency conditions are not approved - a website is NOT the appropriate medium to deal with these conditions and you are requested to call 911.

  3. One question at a time please.

  4. Do not post the same question more than once. Your posts will be deleted and you will be permanently banned from using the forums.

  5. Post any follow-up replies in the original thread.

  6. Keep your posts as short and as to the point as possible.

Help us keep this service free

Before asking a new question please take the time to look for questions in the forums below that are similar to yours. This will prevent us from having to repeat ourselves unnecessarily at a time when our resources are strained. By doing so you are helping us to keep this service free for the benefit of everyone. Thank you.
