Frequently Asked Questions
What are symptoms of constipation?
Generally people with chronic constipation have less than one bowel movement every couple days (or less than three a week). Constipation causes stool to become dry and hard, often having a “lumpy” texture. As stool becomes difficult to pass, people have to strain harder to have a bowel movement. This can be accompanied by the feeling of incomplete passage of stool.
When should I see a doctor about constipation?
Constipation is common, and therefore it’s not always necessary to consult a doctor when you think you may be experiencing constipation. Some more serious symptoms of constipation which may require professional medical attention include constipation which persists for three weeks despite changes to diet or lifestyle, feelings of intense abdominal pain, or pain which inhibits movement, unintentional weight loss, blood or mucus in your stool, the inability to pass stool, or the development of hemorrhoids as a result of straining to go the bathroom.
Why am I constipated?
Diet is the leading cause of constipation. Too many processed foods or a diet low in fiber can make your stool hard, dry, and difficult to pass. Certain medications can cause constipation, such as opioids taken after surgery. A sedentary lifestyle, pregnancy, and dehydration are also common causes.

DR. Allan Marks has helped my daughter two times and we cannot recommend them enough. My daughter has ADHD and can't wait in a waiting room forever. This was the fastest and easiest way to get my daughter diagnosed and pick up a script. One time we used this service when no other doctor was open. Plush care was available! My daughter didn't have to even leave the house in 6 degree weather (would have made her MORE SICK). She had severe sinus infection and Dr. was not only clear and nice but looked up holiday pharmacy hours ahead of time to make sure I could pick up the script in time! AWESOME! 2nd time went just as smooth. Thank you!
Wow. Wow. Wow.
This is so easy and quick. I had a cold virus that turned into a sinus infection. I pulled over on my way to a meeting to video chat w a doctor.
He was attentive, kind, and efficient. After a few questions, he diagnosed my ailment. The call took less than 10 mins.
Prescription was at the pharmacy later that day.
I will be a client for a long time. Thank you.
I never review Apps, but this has been the quickest and most convenient doctor experience(s) I’ve ever had. It cost me no more than what I would have paid to visit an office. I’ve had two appointments and one was done in the comfort of my own living room and the second on my break at work. As a full time worker, full time student, and full time mom, the convenience cannot be beat. I met with Dr. Saremi who is very personable and kind. He immediately resolved my reasons for calling during both appointments. He was competent and trustworthy and valued my time. Can’t recommend this enough.
