I've heard some people say that the doctor told them not to go in for a UTI, Bronchitis, Pink eye, etc. and they were given a prescription to treat it over the phone. How can a doctor diagnose something without looking at it or running any tests? Some things can get dangerous if not properly diagnosed the first time. I guess IMO it seems very unprofessional of a doctor to prescribe and diagnose over the phone based on what a person who isn't a doctor says.
I'm not saying a doctor has never called a prescrip over the phone....I'm just referring to mostly infections, etc.
