Lacks integrity


This app was fantastic to start, but has become a sad community of apparently ill-prepared providers as well as support personnel who seem to misunderstand scope of practice. I have never seen such egregious use of antibiotics as I see posted in cases on this app, as well as LPNs, RNs and EMTs who think hey have more training than they do. There are about three users who post valid, evidence-based information, otherwise it seems to be an outlet for nurses and EMTs who wish they were doctors, and bottom-of-the-barrel med students who really should know their stuff better. Embarrassing.

To the greatest!


Figure one is definitely the greatest app you could ever pass by! It is helping me through my medical journey a whole bunch! Much thanking and appreciation to all founders!

Education and Camaraderie


So many opportunities to learn about “real” world medical issues from all corners of the earth and feel the camaraderie. Administrators are wonderful and maintain privacy in strict control.
