Who is Dr Doug Jenkinson?




I suggest the following possible reasons

  1. Describing the precise symptoms to a doctor with my experience of whooping cough, can make the diagnosis of whooping cough or otherwise, more certain.

  2. You want to confirm what your own doctor has told you about whooping cough issues is in accordance with other medical opinion.

  3. Issues regarding immunization after possible whooping cough often need to be tailored to individual circumstances, and getting the proper answer can be difficult.

  4. Issues regarding the prescribing of antibiotics for protection of contacts are difficult, and you may want to clarify the best course of action for your family circumstances.

  5. The paroxysms of whooping cough can be very frightening and it can be difficult to get anyone to understand this and get reassurance.

  6. You may want to send me a recording for my opinion.

  7. You may want to talk to me on the telephone.

  8. You may want advice on how to approach your own doctor or emergency room doctor tactfully about a self diagnosed illness.

  9. You may have developed a symptom I have not described or explained, and want to check it out.

  10. You may want to find the best way of getting it confirmed in your particular circumstances.
