The fine print:

Dr. Kendall will not be able to make diagnoses without seeing a patient.  Answering a question does not imply any type of physician-patient relationship.  The purpose of “Ask An Expert” is to field general questions and advice.  Any and all responses from “Ask An Expert” should not be in place of medical advice given by the patient’s attending physician. Always seek counsel from the patient’s attending physician before following any medical advice.
