The Carlat Blog writes about a service that calls itself “‘the simplest and most convenient way to solve the most common medical conditions that can get in the way of your busy life.’ It is, quite simply, an online site where (for the low cost of $40) you can answer a few questions about your symptoms and get a “customized Treatment Plan” reviewed and written by a nurse practitioner. If necessary, you’ll also get a prescription written to your pharmacy.”
