Ratings and Reviews
Thank you, AHRQ and USPSTF
This is a well functioning app that puts evidenced based recommendations literally in the hands of clinicians that they can use as they see patients throughout the day. I am so glad that the creators have put in the effort to make this app work so well.
I've been waiting for this app for a long time, glad it's finally released. The only minor issue with it is the loading time, otherwise perfect! Hopefully in the next version it will be faster.
Incredible! Uspstf is the gold standard for adult health maintenance. I usually bring their printed handbook to every clinic but I was amazed to see that they included all that info into this app! A must have for any med student, resident, and even attending
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
