My go-to medical app!
I'm a mom as well as a caregiver for my parents. This app makes it easier for me to research medical questions and to learn more about surgical procedures and treatment plans recommended by doctors. I always use it to prepare a list of questions before important medical appointments, and it's been really helpful. I also use it to check symptoms, which helps me decide whether or not to call a doctor, go to the ER or watch/wait at home.
I really LOVE that it is completely free of advertising. So many other medical apps/websites are cluttered with ads and/or force you to click so many times just to read one article. This has no annoying pop-up ads and no barriers to finding the information I want.
Medical information at this mom's fingertips
I love how easy it is to use the Merck Manual app. Having the Merck Manual on my phone provides me peace of mind because I can have medical information in my hands, even when there’s no internet or cell service. If you’re a mom, Merck Manual is a must. Not only can I search symptoms, injuries, or emergencies, but I can go to the doctor better prepared thanks to the Merck Manual Consumer app.
The Merck Manual is well known as one of the key reference texts for internal medicine physicians. But more and more moms and families are using to help with minor issues. This can also help you tell your doctor more about issues you have. The Merck Manual App allows you to use medical and mom info to get things back on the right track.
