Reviews for the Uncertain:

- Medical App Journal​: 4 Stars

"BOTTOM LINE: The Infectious Disease Persiflager’s Guide is an entertaining and engaging overview of infectious diseases, which is well suited for practicing clinicians and public health researchers. The content appears accurate and is highly referenced, although some sections seem to be pending future updates. The affordable price seems well worth the assimilation of current medical content and experience-based knowledge from a practicing expert in the field.

- Mobile Infectious Disease References: From the Bedside to the Beach.​ Clinical Infectious Diseases.

​"The Infectious Diseases Compendium would be perfect for students and residents to review treatment options prior to staffing a consultation with the attending physician or while admitting patients to a medical or surgical service."

Finally, the infectious disease guide that I have been waiting for. Great organization, up to date information and best of all, context, not just lists. This is a great guide and allows me to educate myself appropriately before getting an ID consult! Thank you, Mark, for doing the heavy lifting. Where do you find the time?

Rants are the best

Reading the rants section paid off the 6 dollars I spent on this app! I know that part is not what I am primarily meant to review but it is so good that I could not resist. The app otherwise appears helpful so far. I love author's puscast podcast. I'm not an ID doctor but both these resources are pretty helpful and this app is easy to navigate.

Needs new update!!!

The app is great and very useful, just needs an update! The latest definition update works fine for the iPad but on the iPhone, I cannot add the category "Diseases," I have to go to search and then the diseases tab to find a disease. Fix this glitch please (for 5 stars), as I use the diseases button more often than anything else!
