DocCheck Ask serves physicians, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals as a platform for exchange of views about tricky cases and discussions about findings, differential diagnoses and therapies. The interdisciplinary exchange between the various medical specialities is paramount at DocCheck Ask. Here, physicians, pharmacists, students and other healthcare professionals have the opportunity to ask questions about medical topics, get expert opinions and share patient case histories. Those questions might be of a more general nature, be aimed directly at doctors of certain specialties or display interdisciplinary discussions. In addition, images or further details (medical history, lab results etc.) can complete those questions..
Only logged-in DocCheck users are able to answer the questions. Difficult questions, unusual patient cases and controversial discussions are sent to the relevant group by email to enable targeted and quick replies.
As soon as a new reply is posted, the questioner and all colleagues participating in the discussion are automatically informed by email.
Important note: DocCheck Ask does not replace consulting a physician or getting medical treatment. DocCheck cannot be held liable for damages caused by un-reflected respectively uncontrolled applications of answers, recommendations or statements published by other users at DocCheck Ask.
