The Value of Your Concierge Doctor

Imagine you are by the sea on the Florida coastline with your toddler.  You are far from home when you realize that your ear hurts.  I mean REALLY hurts.  Tylenol nor Motrin cut it. 

What do you do?

These are the actual words of this actual situation:

"Doccccc, my right ear has a constant dull pain.  If I chew on the right side it sends a shock straight to the ear.  Any ideas?" 

After a few questions, it was diagnosed as swimmer's ear or otitis externa.  So appropriate medications were electronically prescribed to the local pharmacy.  A follow up text was sent to the patient the next morning to check on symptoms.

"Good morning, were you able to get your medications and start using them last night?  How is your ear today?" 

The response: "Ear drops save lives! It still hurts a bit."

The empathetic reply: "OK that's better, but it must have been miserable!"

The closing communication: "Freaking sucked doc!" Grateful that I can message you whenever I need you."

Enough said!
