DietDoc doctors do not issue prescriptions for DEA-controlled substances, non-therapeutic substances, or certain other drugs which may be harmful due to their potential for abuse.

Health records are kept completely private, and we employ robust encryption methods to protect your personal information. You determine who can see the information in your record.
