: : Actually, I was on vacation, came back, and being the computer wiz that I am, promptly erased nearly all my bookmarks....GEEZ!!!! Anyway, I am in reconstruction mode for the bookmarks and just found this site again tonight. I will be visiting the site on Sat or Sun only due to the massive increase in my pain practice recently.

: : : I see lots of messages, but no doctor. Hint anyone. Maybe he bailed, or is on Vacation? All this is just a bunch of "whistling in the Dark"

: I see your messages on this board and think it is really cool that you take the time to respond. Just wondering if your advice/comments could come back on you (like lawsuits) or if they are considered medical opionions from a Dr legally?
: I just wanted to know because I have a really cool Dr who is on the cutting edge of migraines and I wanted him to know about the message board because if he commented like you do, I feel he would help a lot of people. but i know he would be concerned about the liabilities of it all.....
: thanks, and i am glad you are on this message board, i have learned a lot.... :)

Good question...
My premise is that any opinions rendered here are just that and do not constitute in and of themselves, medical advice since I have no relationship to anyone on the net as a personal patient. For all I know, the questions posed here are simply theoretical and may not be from real patients. Nevertheless, anyone receiving my commentary would have to check with their doc anyway since I do not accept patients from the net, and absolves me from attaining the required personal treating relationship in this manner.
I would encourage your doc to hop on line...there are many docs now offering such opinions over the net, and many like myself do not want or need any more patients in their practice. We see net forums as an information exchange rather than as a doctor-patient relationship. Remember, we learn from you too :-)
