Need a doctor's advice? It's a tap away with this app

How would you like to have a doctor's advice in the palm of your hand?  HealthTap is an app where you can get your health questions answered by practicing doctors around the country


If you’ve ever wished you could tap into a doctor’s knowledge anytime you want, you’re in luck.  

A new app called “Health Tap,” grants users the ability to pose their health questions to a community of more than 30,000 doctors.

According to the company’s website, users can also subscribe to receive daily tips from doctors on topics ranging from healthy eating to pain management and what to expect during pregnancy. The app and website can even help to recommend specialists.

While the app is free to download and use, users can choose to pay a small fee if they want their questions answered more quickly.

This seems like a great service for general health information, but I’d still recommend speaking with your doctor if you’re feeling sick or before making any lifestyle changes.
