Hesam Noroozi MD,MPH
Hello, Hesam — I’m so glad that you enjoy the site! In the old-time American West there were many towns too small and too remote to have a doctor or a dentist or even a pharmacy, so doctors and dentists and pharmacists would travel from town to town in wagons like these offering medicine or medical services. They were not always honest or qualified professionals, and often the “medicine” they sold was just flavored alcohol with no therapeutic value, which gave rise to the term “snake-oil salesmen”, meaning people selling useless tonics.
