Established in late 2002 after two years of development, Diagnose-Me.com began as a unique doctor-programmer collaboration. Being the first service of its kind, its future was uncertain at the time; what was clear, however, was the need for a much wider, deeper, and objective evaluation of patient symptoms than a doctor consultation could provide.
Since then, Diagnose-Me.com has grown to the point where we handle tens of thousands of cases each year with a 99.93% satisfaction rate. Though it is now a rare occurrence, we still look forward to encountering never-before-seen problems.
Diagnose-Me.com is based on the Big Island of Hawaii, employs U.S. doctors, and has other staff working remotely across the globe.
Our business is that of diagnosing the underlying health conditions that are causing your current signs and symptoms.
While a doctor is generally only concerned with the current obvious problem, we view the human body as a highly interconnected whole and are therefore also able to highlight issues that are 'creeping up on you', even if they don't have obvious symptoms (yet).
Your diagnosis is presented in an easy-to-understand (yet highly detailed), prioritized, color-coded report. A graphical overview shows the 'big picture' of your health and links to the underlying details. All conclusions are fully supported by evidence and clear explanations, as can be seen in this sample Computer-only Analysis.
We do not pretend that a diagnosis can be confirmed online: completing a diagnosis requires lab testing, physical examination, and/or trial-and-error treatment. However, we do narrow down the possibilities to just a few (including those that might be missed or ignored by a doctor with limited time), making it a simple process of ruling out (or confirming) them one by one.
If you would like to have your case handled by a named, licensed, and contactable human doctor, our doctors are available for reviewing your situation, dealing with your specific concerns, making suggestions, and answering your questions and follow-up questions. Here is a sample Doctor-reviewed Report.
Search engines are excellent sources of medical information, but only when you know what to search for. They do not piece together the many clues that your body provides.Other web sites offer 'diagnosis', sometimes even for free. Diagnose-Me.com differs fundamentally from all of them:
For less than the cost of a rushed doctor's visit or a short-term "take this bottle of pills and see if it improves" solution, you can receive a far more in-depth evaluation of your health than you are likely to receive from any other source. We offer a 100% money-back guarantee that we will find all significant health issues that are affecting you.Upon completing the questionnaire, you will have the following choice of report (reports can be upgraded later by simply paying the price difference):
If you select a doctor-reviewed report, your doctor will be available to answer follow-up questions at no additional charge.
Yes. If you decide not to order a complete report initially then our system will send you a free Preliminary Analysis of your case by e-mail within a few hours. This Preliminary Analysis will provide you with your LifeMeter® reading (if selected) and an overview of your health and risk factors, highlight specific issues and recommendations, but will not go into much detail compared to a complete report.
We accept credit or debit cards, PayPal, checks drawn on a U.S. bank account, or (for anonymity) money orders. All transactions take place on a secure server. Non-US residents who do not have a credit card can obtain an International Money Order from their post office or Western Union®.
By looking at the sample (a real report that was sent out, with just the name changed), you can decide whether you would like one. Your report would of course be based entirely on your own responses and notes. Click here to read feedback from hundreds of past clients.
We guarantee that we will discover all significant medical conditions that are affecting your health, or we will refund your payment in full. Please see our guarantee for full details.
There is no need to enter your real name on the questionnaire, and your report can be sent to a temporary e-mail address such as Hotmail. When it comes to credit card payment, you do not need to enter your real name or address: We simply need the correct card number, expiry date and postal/ZIP code. Alternatively, you can have someone else pay on your behalf.
Our questionnaire has been painstakingly compiled over the years in order to extract maximum useful information about signs, symptoms and risk factors. At over 900 possible questions, it is more comprehensive than any other on the Internet; it probes depths that no single physician has the time, skill or will to deal with.

The human body is extremely complex; there are thousands of possible conditions and hundreds of related signs and symptoms. The Analyst™ does far more than simply connect a few obvious symptoms to a few common conditions. We don't want to ask so many questions... but we have to.
Bear in mind that this is a "drill down" questionnaire and many questions will be skipped. For example, if you tell us that you are a non-smoker, you will not be asked smoking-related questions. If you tell us that you have joint problems, you will be asked detailed questions about those.
Yes. You can leave the questionnaire at any time and return later. The system will remember your progress, and send an email reminder after a few hours. You can start on one device (for example your phone) and continue on another (for example your laptop).
While lab test results may help to confirm or rule out certain conditions, they are not required.
Click here to see some of the more common conditions that we encounter. Your report will include up-to-date information not only on what we uncover but also about conditions already known to you and that you are in danger of developing.
One or both, depending on your choice. The Analyst™ is a computer system that processes your responses to the questionnaire in a way that no human could, to produce a detailed evaluation of your health. For a doctor-reviewed report, the doctor assigned to your case will review the results, answer specific your questions and make adjustments according to any extra notes that you have entered. If you would like to read about some of our doctors, click here.
If you are unsure about involving a doctor, you can select the Computer Analysis and decide after reading it if you need a human doctor's opinion or have questions for a doctor.
Although a doctor and laboratory work may be essential to confirm a diagnosis, The Analyst™ does offer certain advantages:
We use only named, licensed and contactable physicians; it is illegal to practice medicine without a license. You may of course opt for the Computer-only Analysis and discuss it with your own physician.
Yes. You will have the opportunity to choose from a male or female doctor, either MD (Medical Doctor), ND (Naturopath) or DC (Chiropractor). If you would like to read about some of our doctors, who can be chosen specifically to review your case, click here.
If you prefer, we can choose the most appropriate doctor for your case according to any restrictions that you place.
The Analyst™ will have a Computer-only Analysis ready within hours, but a (human) doctor reviewing your case will require more time. We send out Standard Doctor-reviewed Reports within an absolute maximum of 3 business days, and Full Doctor-reviewed Reports within 4 business days. Our doctors aim to complete their reviews within two calendar days, usually working on weekends to achieve this goal.
Click here to see a sample report. Your report can be in HTML or PDF format, and password-protected to prevent others from reading it.
Yes. The HTML (web page) format report can be viewed using any browser on any computer, tablet or phone, no matter how small the screen. The PDF format report is only recommended if you are using a computer.
Your report is uploaded to a private location on our website. We then send a link to your report by email, which will take you to your report just like any other web page. If you have problems saving your report, or if you simply prefer it, we can also send your report as an email attachment upon request.
Both report formats (HTML and PDF) are single, fully self-contained files. In other words, no remote images, scripts or other external resources are required. Your report file can be saved to your computer just like any web page. Once saved to your computer, it can be viewed without an Internet connection.
When saving a web page to your computer, most browsers offer the option to save as "Web page, complete" or "Web page, HTML only". Either option is fine, and will result in only one file being saved.
There are three ways to share your report with your doctor or anyone else:
It is certainly possible to print your report. See Instructions for printing your report.
Please note, however, that your report is best viewed on a computer because of the many hyperlinks to external web pages and other sections within the report.
If you ever lose your report, simply contact us and we will send you another copy. We regularly resend reports to clients who used our service several years ago.
Yes. We understand that you may just need some medical advice, without going through our extensive questionnaire. Our easy-to-use system puts you in touch quickly with a doctor who will answer your question(s):
The process is simple:
$10 and up – it's really up to you. Most questions are relatively straightforward and do not require much of a doctor's time. The cost depends on 3 factors:
A short question without attachments might cost $10 to answer, whereas longer questions with attachments that require more extensive responses would cost incrementally more – you select your desired response level.
If you require further clarification of the doctor's answer, he or she will be happy to respond at no additional charge. New and unrelated questions, however, will have to be asked through our website in the usual way at the Ask A Medical Question page.
If the doctor is unable to answer your question then we do of course provide a full refund.
If you have a complaint, please see our guarantee. If you have follow-up questions for your reviewing doctor, submit them by email and he or she will be happy to respond. For any other questions, either reply to one of our e-mails or contact us here.
Don't worry, we're very accommodating and here to help. If you need to add or change something in your questionnaire and receive a revised report (no charge), that's not a problem. If you did not select the LifeMeter® option but now want it, that's easy to fix. For these or any other problems, either reply to one of our e-mails or contact us here.
