    "Medscape is an app for contacting and communicating with medical professionals that can be useful--if it worked properly. Since recent updates it's been quite buggy overall and sometimes irritating to use. If they'd improve that it might be recommended but until then, nope."

    "I'm normally not into medical apps, but something about UpToDate was especially helpful. The fact that it can remind you of your patient's basic needs and medical history in the field, so to say, is fairly useful and I find that it isn't really intrusive (to me) nor does it require special institutional attention. It's a fairly rock-solid app. "

    "I got drunk one night and installed this app. Sadly I don't have a use for it at all since I'm a single male. From my drunken capades I remember it not being bad though! It's well made!"

    "This is a fairly specialized medical app as it focuses only on digestive difficulties but it is still capable of creating a stir in your tummy. Sometimes, when I review all this medical knowledge, I wonder if people don't become convinced they have an illness. But then again, knowledge is power."
