Excellent evaluation tool
I am overweight considering bariatric surgery. I do not quite qualify at the present time, but I might weight at previous times has. This is an excellent tool for me to evaluate where I'm at, where I've been, and where I hope to be someday. It, also, has additional charts and information to guide me regarding obesity and weight loss.
I have relied on Epocrates for years
Nothing is perfect when it comes to covering all of the information that this app provides. That being said nothing else compares to Epocrates. I have been using Epocrates for close to 10 years. I use it almost every day. I highly recommend it to all healthcare professionals.
Ease of use is outstanding. Provides succinctly a lot of relevant information rapidly. While I do not necessarily agree with the clinical recommendations for all persons regarding shift from lifestyle measures to drugs or surgery, these are not the fault of the app which is merely quoting them. Having the information presented is still useful.
