Great for FNP

I am in FNP school and this app is great. It would be greater if you could also type in symptoms to get a diagnosis because you have to know the diagnosis to look it up. Once u have it, it will give a list of DD. Definitely a must have for the novice. I use it a lot when I study, not so much at clinicals.

Excellent Clinical Resource!

I use this app every day in Family Medicine. Very informative and user-friendly! I highly recommend this app for any Health Care Professional! And the recommendations are Evidenced Based!

Great Info

This is a very helpful app with great information and easy to use in the clinic setting. Keep it up with great updates. Has helped me to better care for patients with diverse conditions.
