According to her, now the Internet is full of medical spam.
"These are various fabrications, clichéd schemes that are circulating on the Internet. All this is adopted, and then, unfortunately, we are faced with dramatic situations when prescriptions from the Internet are used, and the patient comes to us after repeated courses of antiviral or antibacterial drugs. and then we are very limited in the choice of treatment regimen. Sometimes the most important thing is missed - time, "the doctor concluded.
