The wonderful thing about technological advancement is that it has allowed us to know more about our personal health than ever before. With this most recent app, First Opinion provides a 24-hour service that allows the user to ask a doctor general medical questions. The service is free of charge for those who can wait to receive a response within 24 hours and cost $9 per month for 5-minute responses or $29 per month for answers within 3 minutes.
The app is, of course, not intended as a replacement for 911 or your current physician, it does allow users to ask questions about everyday signs and symptoms that may prompt the question “do I need to see a doctor”? It also allows users to ask more private questions that you may not have thought of while at the doctor such as mild allergies and rashes.
As a fairly new service that is available on the app marketplace, we would love to know your thoughts about this service and if you find it beneficial.
