We told her to not implement them and to consult with other professional because the drops were for the hearing. This ophthalmologist told her that if her daughter applied them, the girl was going to be blind”, features the doctor Roberto Carlos Anzardo, creator of an original web of free medical consultations in Bolivia.
The address is Medicoensudomicilio.com, a web site created by a Bolivian doctor in 2009 that offers free consultations to people from 88 countries carrying out questions about their health problems online. Portal received some 600,000 visits only in 2012.
It is not, however, a traditional medical consultation, since no member of the team of 12 volunteer specialists – Bolivia, Argentina, United States, Mexico and Spain – prescribe medication or recommend the name of a health professional in any country where questions come from, which takes no more than 24 hours to be answered.
Medicoensudomicilio.com is available in Spanish and English. The three countries that most visit the page are Argentina, Spain and Mexico. Bolivia is in eighth place.
