Welcome to abdopain.com.
We are truly glad to have you here on our site.
Finding trusted, medical information, can be difficult, despite the plethora of websites out there.
Even when you do find one, it can also be difficult to be sure that the information presented there actually relates to your particular medical situation.
What about being able to get a well qualified doctor’s perspective on your particular symptom (s) or medical condition or indeed just a second opinion discretely, to help answer those nagging questions going through your mind from the comfort of your home or office, or even on the go?
That is where we come in. Abdopain.com is a frequently updated, evidence-based medical website written and reviewed by doctors with many years’ experience in the diagnosis and treatment of common causes of abdominal pain and a wide range of medical conditions. We:
The information we provide here, including our paid services are for information purposes alone and is not a substitute for a one-to-one consultation with your doctor or healthcare provider, who obviously have access to your whole medical history and would be able to assess you in a more complete way than we could ever.
If you have a medical condition or symptom that requires urgent medical attention, please consult your doctor immediately.
We are committed to providing you with the most up-to-date, credible, medically referenced, reliable health information as good as it could get anywhere, here on abdopain.com.
To this end, we never outsource the writing of the information provided here to just any one, but only to doctors who have been qualified for five years or more and are in active medical practice. All our doctors are duly registered with the respective medical regulating body in the country or countries of their practice.
