Dr E. Maescu’s response to the question: ‘Why do you work with Dokteronline?’
For me, online medicine is a new and challenging area for applying my knowledge. By giving online consultations and prescribing medication based on well-developed questionnaires, I feel that I can help patients faster and more efficiently. This ensures quick access to treatment and medical support if needed.
All doctors agree that the online way of working is the most advantageous. I have gained over 15 years of practical experience in the field of emergency medicine, and I can share this experience with online patients with all kinds of medical problems as well as with younger colleagues.
