Hello Doc, this is my health page
- The Hindu, Tuesday, May 8, 2001
Do you remember the last time
you met your doctor? And do you remember what the prescription
was? Unlikely. That's why you should have a decent filing system.
And in case you are not able to do so, key in all of them. Each
one of them. So that the next time you meet your doctor who
quizzes you on your last medication, ask him to look up a website.
Cool man. It just can't get any better than this. For the health
freaks, the frequently ill, for those with a condition such
as high/low BP/ diabetes, and the hypochondriacs.

in the medical field to provide 'patient information' in the
form of small booklets and leaflets on various medical topics.
