: I am new to this board. I have seen that Harry responds to a lot of questions that people ask and I just wanted to know if he is a doctor. I think you must be careful when giving medical advice.
I am not a medical doctor.I am an Electical Engineer.I also think you have to be careful when you give medical advice-don't you think we all do.The messages I have posted on this and other boards are based on my experiences,helping friends and relatives and years of study.It has been my experience that most people that use healthboards.com are not health care professionals.If you are looking for a board where only Doctors answer messages--they are there online but I have found the answers at times are not very good.
Since you are new to this Health Board,it asks you to read their "message board guidelines".I suggest that you review them ---the one that says"Use Good Personal Judgement".
If you are the "Mia" that Posted a message on the
Bowel Disorders Message Board on 7/3/00 on this site that I replied to--I assure you my reply to you is valid and can be documented. If you want a bibliography that tells you where the info can be found---just ask.I don't dream it up.
As you know there is alot of medical data on the WEB.The problem is finding the information that applies only to YOU and your concerns among the deluge of "stuff". I think this Board is Very Good.You are welcome to Post--Anytime!!!
