Is This Permitted On the Boards?

Is it allowed to ask members in a thread for doctor recommendations in a specific health field for a particular geographic location?

(The written rules seemed to be slightly ambiguous on this point in my reading of them.)

That would constitute medical advice, which is forbidden.

I thought as much. Thank you for answering my question.

People do seem to ask for pro-life OB/GYN doctors in particular locations fairly often.

Oh, good clarification! If the question is about the physician’s or psychologist or therapist’s (et cetera) stated ethics and not about medical care, we can ask and answer about that.

Okie…thanks for the heads up.

I don’t remember anyone naming names, but rather describing how to find such a person in some area or other (by affiliation, et cetera…)

Thanks…That’s a good point. I’ll keep it in mind.
