    "WebMD is a great app if you don't always want to go to the doctor right away. While it's for informational purposes only, it is great to search for your symptoms and have an idea of whether or not to seek further medical attention. It is really useful for people in rural areas or the elderly."

    "WebMD is a life saver, literally. It's my go to for initial questions about healthcare or symptoms my parents have. They're getting a bit older, so sometimes these questions save them a tough trip to the hospital. It's not perfect, but incredibly useful. "

    "WebMD is a great resource for health information when trying to find and categorize illnesses. While never as good as your primary health physician it offers an opportunity on familiarizing people with illnesses and prevention and care methods for each one."

    "WebMD can offer advice on many different things. While a doctor is better in most cases, anything that concerns you medically, you can usually find some sort of hint about on WebMD. Whenever there's no help here, they have great gateways to finding you someone that does know what you need to know. "

    "im pretty paranoid when it comkes to my health, especially since at my age, the symptoms start acting up. webmd is helpful in finding out what problems i have, but 9disclaimer) it really shouldnt be a replacement for a doctor since its just a web app. consult a doctor if you feel something bad and dont rely on webmd alone!!"

    "Last year during the best summer Ireland has ever had, i started to experience headaches. Long story short i looked it up on webmd (bull$#*!) and it told me i had a brain tumour. It cause me to be terrified about this non existent tumour all summer even when i went away to spain. It made me so upset and wasted my summer. What a crappy unreliable website. Its bull$#*! dont depend on it! Turns out the headaches was a symptom of my depression i was diagnosed with"

    " There is a website called WebMD. It is a great site for medical advice. If you want to just look up a few symptoms and see what you think you may have, it is great. However, sites like this can be dangerous. If something is wrong, you need to see a Dr. You have to be very careful about what you read on the internet. So personally, I am not a fan of sites like this, which can cause people to not seek proper treatment. "

    "I love WebMD. I use it for me and my children but it would be good for elderly people also. There is so much information available on this about all medical topics."

    "WebMD is a useful tool to allow people to get an idea of what may be wrong with them. You shouldn't always go 100% by what you find but it will give you the knowledge on if you should see a doctor."

    "WebMD is easily one of the best apps for fathers. It helped my dad self-diagnose his diabetes before going to the doctor. This was extremely advantageous because he caught it early! So our family owes a debt of gratitude to this app. I wouldn't advise to use it in place of medical advice; rather as a basis for doing some research before visiting with your doctor."

    "WebMD is my go-to site when it comes to health. Good thing that they also have readings about dieting and proper nutrition. "

    "When I had some bad back pain last week, I found myself searching on WebMD for some natural home remedies. I was disappointed when I could only find common-sense answers like "take a pain pill", or "go to a chiropractor". I was looking for some care that was outside the box that I could do at home to get some relief. I'll look elsewhere next time."

    "I've always used WebMD instead of going to a doctor. It's a lot cheaper to pay for the internet than to go see a licensed practitioner. The only issue I have is every symptom I'm looking up usually ends up being cancer. But WebMD always has a solution for cancer and I haven't died yet so obviously it works. "

    "I've used the site to get a general idea of what may be wrong. I look for the symptoms i'm currently experiencing and go from there. It's certainly shouldn't be used to diagnose any health issues one may have but it can help narrow down what could be wrong. From there you can look elsewhere and decide from there. It is certainly a learning tool. You can learn terms, you can learn some medical language but again, it shouldn't be used to diagnose an issue."

    "It's WebMD. Everyone knows about it. You stay up late thinking you have a cold, check your symptoms, and then start thinking you might have the bubonic plague. hahahha but honestly, everyone should have this on their phone, just to make it easier than searching for it on Google. "
