DrDonnica.com is a user-friendly women's health information site dedicated to women by a leading women's health expert and advocate, Donnica Moore MD. "Dr. Donnica" is best recognized as the women's health expert on NBC's Later Today Show for its full run from 1999-2000. Previously, she discussed women's health issues as a frequent guest on NBC's Weekend Today Show. Dr. Donnica has done over 200 television segments discussing contraception to infertility and migraines to menopause. Dr. Donnica's voice is now heard daily in the nationally syndicated radio spot "Dr. Donnica's Women's Health Report". She is also a frequent speaker around the country for both consumer and medical audiences on women's health topics.

Whenever Dr. Donnica appears on television, radio, online or in person, she has been amazed by the number of questions women have about their health and the health of their friends and family members. To try to address many of these questions, Dr. Donnica wrote lengthy companion articles to all her NBC appearances, which were posted for several weeks--or even months-- at a time on MSNBC.com. Still, the questions poured in. DrDonnica.com was born out of her attempt to answer those questions in a streamlined way to give women the information they clearly want, need, and deserve.

We regret that Dr. Donnica cannot answer individual questions, although any questions she receives that she has not yet covered she will put on her "to answer" list: these answers may appear in our "FAQ" section if the topic is a common one, as a health topic article if the topic is a very involved one, or even in our guest experts section if a specialist's opinion is necessary. No names or other identifying information will ever be used from unsolicited questions sent to us

DISCLAIMER: Dr. Donnica repeatedly emphasizes--and cannot emphasize enough--that the purpose of this information is for background use only! This is not to replace your regular visits and communication with your personal health care providers, but to enhance and enrich that relationship. Dr. Donnica is not pleased to report that the average physician visit in many settings is now 7.5 minutes--we want the information on this site to serve to make the time you do have with your doctor much more valuable. Our goal will be to make you a better-informed patient--we believe this will make you a better-served patient, as well as a healthier one.

The content on DrDonnica.com will be updated daily, Monday through Friday, as we add the transcripts and audio files of each day's radio segment for "Dr. Donnica's Daily Women's Health Report". Existing content will be edited as needed and other new content will be added. Of course, we will not be able to update all our content daily or even monthly. We have dated each content section for your convenience. Medical information often changes rapidly, so be sure to check the date of each article to see when it was last updated.
