What Health Experts are saying about JustAnswer 


  "Many of the customers (patients) are just seeking genuine help from someone who wants to take the time to listen to them.  I have found this increasingly rewarding over the last 8 months in particular. Also, the anonymity that the website provides I think allows patients to be more open and forthcoming with me which I think helps overcome the obstacles that I am used to seeing in the clinic or hospital setting. VERY VERY REWARDING on a personal level!” 
Dr. David, Board Certified Physician on JustAnswer since 2010




The site is providing solutions with very affordable question fees...people are getting help from realExperts and I love to work with the site and provide help related to my profession for people who can’t afford expensive fees...
 Dr. Zaheer, Homeopathic Doctor of Medicine on JustAnswer since 2008
