    Hello.. I was wondering if there are any doctors who accept patients via phone or video chat? If so, can anyone private message me the information please? Quick background- Rheumatoid Arthritis, former user of Mino (some success) looking to try it again. No doctors nearby in my state. Not in a position to travel.

    Hi Woods1977,
    I too, am a former user of mino. I just came back to this forum as I have started mino again and am trying to wean off prednisone. I had a bit of a remission the first attempt, then when I had to switch to a different AP Dr my symptoms became so bad that I had to go on prednisone. Hoping Maz sees this

    As far as I know, in order to prescribe drugs, a doctor in any state in the U.S. needs to see you in person at least once a year. Once a year is a minimum for prescriptions but you can Skype a Doctor in any location for a consultation without a prescription anytime. Because of this restriction, we have had to travel in person to our doctors once a year and then we could do our follow-ups over the phone or using Skype.
