    "This app is a wonderful way to get your patients to actually answer the phone. Instead of having to *67 them, you can instead call them from your personal phone and it will display your work phone number. It is invaluable in a time where people just aren't going to answer unknown calls."

    "This could even the playing fields when speaking to your doctor. An app that gives you a basic understanding of diseases, treatments, drug interactions. It even has a bill identifier and and sources like American Diabetes association is on board with it. You can have a medical consult in your pocket, though it is not intended to take the place of medical treatment. Leave that to the real doctors, like the ones who are carrying this app. "

    "Even though the interface for the website is a little on the generic side, the idea behind this website makes so much sense. I find that I always have to go to multiple websites for all of this information, and then I have to call and make an appointment at the end of it all. To be able to go to one website and take care of everything is such an amazing service and time saver. "
