Ratings and Reviews
As a 14 year black male MS veteran it's nice to see an app tailored for me and others out there. I do wish that it had the ability to add a more options to the journal area. I try to exercise at least 5 to 6 days a week and I wish there was a way to add those days I succeed as a single yes/no checkbox so I could graph it against "the good vs. the bad" days. Overall I am very happy and hope to further additions. Keep up the great job.
This is the most helpful app!!
I have found so much help here on this app! It is my go to after I see my team of doctor's and need to understand what what said and why!!
Handy Reference for Residents & General Neurologists
Convenient to have things like the 2010 Revised Diagnostic Criteria and the FSS/EDSS at your fingertips as you care for patients. I'm sure they will add newer drugs like teriflunomide soon.
