Online Doctor Consultation
Got an email from a buddy in Malaysia, questions following my recent blog outburst, wondering which test he should go for. His menu was like this:
Type of checkup :
1) Blood test
3) Chest X-Ray
4) Cancer cells check only for liver and colon (based on family history, unless there are other specific places to test, additional charges apply)
5) Analysis by Medical Officer (like normal GP)
All as above except analysis by Specialist, not MO.
Thought option B was funny, having the choice of a more specialized doctor see you instead of an MO. So, seeing that gave me an idea. Perhaps I could make some extra cash by doing online consultation huh?
Dr. K's consultation options and fees:
Examination by a board-certified, US-trained subspecialist: (Come back in 3 years time)
Examination by a specialist in internal medicine: US$ 250
Examination by a medical intern: US$100 (get one of my interns to do this)
Examination by medical student: We pay you US$50 per student
Package includes 132 of our most popular blood test, even able to test if your great-grandkids will be smart or stupid, and palm-reading by our resident chinese palm-reader/bomoh/bobohizan/exorcist.
