I was expecting that Medical Sciences.SE to be a site for people at all levels to ask on topic questions, including laypeople and students, and where they can expect that a willing expert is trying to provide an answer on their respective level; exacty how it is standard on most other SE sites.
However I received the following comment below my questions:
[...] This is Medical Sciences.SE. It's a technical, scientific site and doesn't really offer answers at a layperson level. [...]
This surprised me.
Question: Is this comment accurate and is Medical Sciences.SE solely made for experts asking experts and exchanging answers on a technical level?
I am aware of other sites on the StackExchange network which operate on expert level only (such as MathOverflow), but these sites usually have their layperson equivalent (Math.SE in this case). I am not aware that this is the case with Medical Sciences.SE.
Please note: I explicitly do not want to discuss the questions itself, which I am aware was asked in an unfortunate first person and appears to lack research. I wonder however how it can be read as asking for PMA (which was the close reason).
