Ten minute medical consultation.


25 per session - Virtual OK - Posted Dec 18, 2016

I will provide a brief analysis and advice regarding one medical question of your choice. I will:

Offer a detailed and accurate medical answer to your question.
Offer a brief plan of action to go from here with your doctor

I can provide disease specific education
- Medication education
- Assistance in understanding a plan of care prescribed by a healthcare professional
- Help in working toward adhering to your plan of care
- Preparation for upcoming medical office visit

I will NOT:

Provide a definitive diagnosis or attempt treatment over the phone.
Write prescriptions of any kind.
Agree to establish any kind of doctor/patient relationship with you unless you have actually seen me in clinic.
Act as a substitute for seeing your primary care physician.

This service is intended as a way to obtain accurate and safe information about medical questions, not as a way to avoid going to the doctor. I am happy to help answer questions you don't think you'll have time to ask your doctor or which your doctor did not address, but I always reserve the right to refer you to your primary care physician for any and all matters which come up during the course of our consultation.

About Bob Calhoun

I am a board certified Family Medicine physician with 5 years experience in a variety of medical settings. I have a lot of experience providing education on disease processes, and I am comfortable wit...h teaching a wide variety of people with different education levels. I am just getting started in the barter economy and have a full time job, so I'm not looking to establish a clientele of ongoing patients. I am, however, happy to provide my knowledge and expertise in exchange for other services, and I enjoy helping people live healthy, happy lives by providing education and advice. I am also an avid fantasy fiction reader, a lover of poetry and art, a musician (looking for lessons on guitar and/or violin), and an amateur philosopher (aren't we all?). I love to chat with like-minded people about virtually anything, and I am partially here so that I can just meet people who are also interested in making the world a little better for their having lived in it. When we share our talents with the world, they grow and improve us right along with the world. For now, I am limiting my services to virtual consultations about medical questions, where I will be happy to provide a basic but detailed analysis of the situation or question and provide basic advice about how you can improve your health in regard to that situation. Once I am more comfortable with this economy, I may offer more services in the future. show more
