  • The reason why we should have vertual doctors is because there are people out there that have phobias of going outside, and some have phobias of germs, and others have other reasons for not going, like hating to wait in doctor's offices, or traveling to the doctor, waiting in a room filled with sick people, and possibly getting sick, and the fact that the wait is too long... or these people just hate going to any sort of a doctor. I am one of these people and I wish someone will tell me a vertual doctor so that he can give me a prescription for my medication.
