Five benefits of an online doctor

online doctorRealising you have a health issue that needs medical attention and treatment can cause anxiety. Not only are you uncomfortable, you now have to think about making time to visit your GP and describing your symptoms in order to receive treatment for your problem.

Although in many instances nothing can replace the necessity of a face-to-face visit – an online doctor cannot inspect an injury or feel for soreness, for example – when it comes to determining your health history, responding to a description of symptoms, and prescribing medicine for common conditions, a virtual consultation can be just as effective. From eliminating the need to describe symptoms in person to access to a large amount of information about your condition, there are many benefits of online doctors and prescription services.

Website update

Dr Fox website
The Dr Fox website has been updated (30 June 2016) so it is easier to use and provides a consistent experience on all devices (PCs, phones, and tablets).

The layout has remained largely unchanged, with the same simple questionnaires, ordering and re-ordering process, messaging system, and all the other features our patients have come to expect over the years.

This has been the first major update since the website was launched in January 2010, and has taken the team over 12 months to complete!

We hope our users like the changes, and welcome any feedback or suggestions.

Please note the new website does not now support very old browsers (due to standards and security issues).

Online symptom checker or online consultation?

online symptoms checkWith the introduction of online symptom checkers, many people are using the web to diagnose anything from a cold to cancer, but nothing replaces a trip to your doctor. However, an online consultation can provide useful information and help self-diagnosis for minor issues or whilst waiting for an appointment.

If you have a small health issue you feel does not requires professional attention, you may be able to get the advice you need, and even a prescription, without leaving the house.

Limitations of online symptom checkers

The amount of medical information available online is astonishing, but for every useful piece of information you will find a large number of inaccuracies. You may find quick answers to medical questions you have, but can you really rely on this information to treat your condition? Read in full
