My gut instict was always that it was a scam and very dangerous! My insurance company just sent out letter outlining some changes and one of those changes is that they will cover online docotors appointments. To me, this sounds like a BAD BAD BAD BAD idea!! ESPECIALLY if this doctor is going to be prescribing you medications, especially narcotic medications. How can a doctor be sure what is best for you without even seeing you? I would also be concerned that they didn't have all of your medical records or history and it jsut seems that it could lead to a dangerous situation. Check out your local clinics before you go this route.
It is however lovely that doctors have found a way to charge you a crap load of money without having to even see you! Heck, you could be talking ot his 10 ys old daughter. Leave it to the money grubbing medical industry! *sigh*
