LOS ANGELES, April 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Shirin Towfigh at the Beverly Hills Hernia Center is the Western United States' only surgeon specializing in the treatment of abdominal wall hernias, and one of the country's leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of hernias in women. Her reputation as a renowned hernia expert makes her one of the most sought after doctors when it comes to medical advice for patients in Los Angeles and beyond. Now, with the unveiling of a new online medical consultation tool, Dr. Towfigh is making her expertise easily available to those who are too far away or otherwise unable to receive a consultation in person.
- Who it's For – It is important to note that the best way to receive a medical diagnosis is to meet with a doctor in person so they can conduct a face-to-face examination. Yet, many patients who either live very far away from Dr. Towfigh or are unable to travel can still benefit from her hernia diagnostics skills with an online examination. These patients are anyone, women especially, who suspects that they may have a hernia, but have been told by other doctors that their pain is caused by something else. Because of anatomical differences between men and women, female hernia pain is often misattributed, and in many unfortunate cases, labeled as psychosomatic.
- How it Works – Patients who are unable to visit Dr. Towfigh in person can start the hernia consultation process by filling out the online Hernia Health Questionnaire. Next, patients will provide a written narrative of their symptoms to give Dr. Towfigh a good idea of what to look for in any past tests and medical data that patients provide. Most people will send copies of prior operation reports, radiologic examinations, ultrasounds, and MRIs if they have had any of those tests done in the past. Once all of this information is received, Dr. Towfigh will thoroughly review all of the information provided, and then provide a written response. This whole process typically takes approximately 3 weeks.
It is important to know that this online consultation process does not denote a doctor-patient relationship between the patient and Dr. Towfigh. In fact, because most people who use this service live far away, nearly all of the patients will continue their treatment with other doctors. Yet, Dr. Towfigh's ability to correctly diagnose hernias in both men and women is an outstanding resource that allows patients whose treatment may currently be stalled to continue on the path toward a pain-free life. You can find the doctor's online consultation form at either of the links above.
