A doctor who welcomes internet research from her patients? How refreshing! As a patient, I really feel like it’s my responsibility to inform myself on my condition. When my kids have had problems, I’ve turned to the internet – and occasionally ended up with more specific knowledge on the subject (allergies and infant colitis) than our pediatrician. The doctors we see are fantastic, but they can’t be specialists in everything. I think that the key is to do as you suggest – get information from several reputable sites and be aware as you research so that you don’t let the information “make you sick.”
Thanks for this!
