The only medical app do I use more than three times a day ... No others are even close! I've been using ePocrates for more than 15 years now: initially before smartphones, on a Palm Treo now on iPhone. Can't remember the last time I thumbed through a PDR or printed monograph; can't imagine a drug interaction search without it. It's a continually updated database that keeps getting better; though I do miss the differential diagnosis function of 8+ years ago; helped stir the brain matrix through symptom queries at various diagnostic tiers. Thanks for returning the 'delete notification' function; next step is to stop making me confirm the delete; my EHR already wears me down enough!

My go to app!

I've had a subscription to Epocrates Essentials for many years. At this point, I don't know if I can calculate drug doses without it! ( I've tried - I've still got it, but this app is so easy to use to calculate dosages).

I use the BMI tool multiple times per day. I also use the bugs and drugs app, that's set to the isolates in my area.

I use the search feature to look up random rashes, syndromes, etc.

I'm a pediatric NP in a primary care environment. I couldn't imagine working without it.

I often use it to show patients what I'm talking about, and how I'm certain that their rash is 'X'.

I'm a beta tester for ICD-10. I looked at it quickly today. I'm not looking forward to October!

Great app. I have other medical apps, but have never used them. They sound good when I download them, but Epocrates is it for me.

And no, I don't work for the company, nor do I get any compensation! Just love the app.

Essential to medical practice!

This new version has a great new look and feel, and is quite easy to use. The multidrug interaction checker is one of the greatest clinical tools to cvome out in a long time. I wrote a review earlier pointing out what I thought was a failing of the new version, but find that I was mistaken, and it does everything I'd like it to do. In my clinical practice I use ePocrates many times each day, and I always have it with me on hospital rounds. I couldn't practice with the same accuracy and efficiency without it!!
