It was very helpful and convenient and I will definitely use it next time I'm sick with something minor and don't want to go to the regular doctor. Give it a shot it's great.

  • My son had sores all over his mouth and throat and within ten minutes of me seeing them for the first time we had a diagnosis from the doctor. No getting him out and driving and waiting. It was awesome.
