Ratings and Reviews
Excellent educational tool
This is an outstanding tool for practicing physician and surgeons that would like to explain to their patients certain diseases and treatments.
The quality of the cartoons as well as the explanations of the diseases and potential treatments are excellent and very easy to understand.
Furthermore, they are links to official organizations like the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons, where the reader can expand their knowledge about the disease that they are interested in.
I would like to recommend to the author to expand this application with cartoons about colonoscopies, esophagogastroduodenoscopies (EGD) and other surgical procedures like polypectomies and hemorrhoidal surgeries. Perhaps even a narrated version of the cartoons can be developed in the future.
Overall a great educational tool for patients and physicians. I'm using it in my practice and my patients are delighted with it.
Wonderful med app!
This is a fantastic app! Navigation through the different disease states is easy which in turn makes my job as a physician so much easier. This app assists me in explaining complex processes to patients in a way that they can comprehend what is going on inside their bodies. I do not have to rely on my limited artistic ability anymore, because the animations are wonderful! I highly recommend this app to everyone.
