Questions in the Heart Disease Expert Forum

Hello.

It seems the clever cardiologists at this forum delay answering questions that already have been commented by members. I'm not sure why, but maybe the doctors believe those questions are already answered.

People asking questions at the Expert Forum do this for a reason - they want a professional opinion. If they didn't, they would ask here or at the Heart Disease Community.

This is just my personal opinion and not by any means a statement from MedHelp, but I would encourage the members here to only comment posts at the Expert Forum after a physician has answered them. I believe this will be more polite.

Take care and keep up the good job, all of you that spend time here providing help and reassurance.

Over there, I have seen them simply not answer questions at all, even if there are no comments by lay people.  I suspect that the questions are read, but are "triaged", and the less interesting or medically pressing just receive less attention.

....I haven't visited the expert heart forum for quite awhile, but it appears to me the expert doctor probably does not read or even consider a non-expert's posted comments...I have seen the same response from a doctor with different rhetoric.  What seems to happen ied s the doctor's response tops all other prior posts when posted.  And the doctor almost always does not respond to further questions or comments.  I don't look at it being impolite to the doctor, but of help to the OP while waiting for a doctor's respond...sometimes days and sometimes no response.

It would seem in the effort of being fair there would not be an expert's response based on a level of evaluation as all questions are important to the OP.

Am I missing something or is there a forum where we can ask a question to an expert?

Could you please tell me where this is?

Thanks. :)

On the upper banner there is place to ask the experts - click on 'experts' ... there is only one site that I could see related to heart disease.

there used to be an expert heart rhythm one but it hasn't been visited by a dr in a very long time so most of us who want to ask a dr do so in the heart disease expert forum  http://www.medhelp.org/forums/Heart-Disease/show/114  there are other expert forums also; some are free to use and limited to 1 or 2 questions a day, others you can pay like $20 and get a doctor to answer
