I was reading the health section of the New York Times on my iPhone and I came across this great article about finding a good doctor that I wanted to share with you.
This article talks about the medical related sites that you can go to get FREE medical information. The sitest they listed were not the typical sites that I knew about. Below are some of the best ones I saw:
- Hospital Compare – Select 3 hospitals within 25 miles of your home and compare the quality of these hospitals.
- Family Doctor – Helps patient needs on common ailments in a language that’s very easy to understand. Content is written by experts.
- Foundation for Informed Medical Decisions – Endorsed by society of General Internal Medicine.
- Medical Library Association Guide
- State Boards of Medicine
I could go on and on but the article on the NY Times website – In Search of a Good Doctor,is truly a great starting point for you and your family for everything related to medical advice.
I personally found this article by Dr Chen, to be one of the best reads of this new year.
