Excellent source of medical information for consumers and common health enthusiasts. The information is from reputable sources, easy to use and understand, associated with hyperlinks and with pictures and videos. This manual is free without ad.

Hard to find specific information from search bar. Such as, when I typed mental illness or mental health it returned no results. The topic is mental health disorders and has to be typed in exactly to access the information.

The guide has thorough explanations that are easy to understand. By entering symptoms, the app leads users to their possible cause, such as illness/disease, infection, injury, etc. If appropriate, suggestions for relieving symptoms until the patient can follow up with a doctor may also be included.
