I love this. If we have an alternate route for healthcare directly marketed to end users, that's a way around the insufferable healthcare monopoly. Healthcare piracy.

The average person who reads the first 10 pages of search results for their disease definitely knows more about it than their doctor. Doctors are smart, but medicine is huge and they aren't polymaths.

The obvious obstacle is that you legally cannot prescribe medicines without a medical license but hey who said the doctor has to physically be present or can't be a desperate Carribean med school graduate.
