Social media is all around us and the medical community has FINALLY figured out how to utilize it for the betterment of patient education and care! Most all physicians in the United States have a social media presence, but few are using it as effectively as the folks at HealthTap. I am happy to report I have signed up early with the founders of www.healthtap.com. In my own words, it is Facebook and Twitter meet WebMD...BUT you can have faith in the content that is posted on HealthTap because it is all written by trusted, leading physicians. Unlike most other health advice websites, there are no advertisements that skew search results or answers to your questions.
It is free and easy for patients to sign up and start asking their medical questions--go to www.healthtap.com today and sign up! Find me, Dr. David Finke, and read some of my answers/advice. Then start asking your own questions!
