In offering the capability to "Ask An Expert", it is not the intention of NorthShore University HealthSystem or its Clinical Services to provide a diagnosis or specific medical advice. Rather, the objective is to disseminate information to help Chicago-area consumers better understand their health status. The information provided by the clinician's response should not be considered complete nor a replacement for consultation with a qualified physician who is capable of providing diagnosis and medical treatment specific to an individual's needs.
If this is a medical emergency, call 911.
