Dr. Google is in: The ups and downs of unlimited Internet information
Dr. Google is in: The ups and downs of unlimited Internet information
Medical information on the Internet is available 24/7 and knows no geographic limits. Patients can educate themselves while in bed, on the sofa, or while commuting. Such access facilitates saving time, money, and embarrassment for patients in the most rapid way possible. The plus side is that they can empower themselves with additional information, possibly motivating them to make a medical appointment and making them feel more prepared for that intervention, according to Ivan Goldberg, MBBS, FRANZCO.
Managing orbital venous malformations with a hybrid procedure
