Some Comments to Patient and Facilitators
Increasingly, Patients and their relatives and counselors (who are helping the patient obtain the best possible medical care and whom we call "Facilitators") want to play a more active role in determining their medicine. And this is quite compatible with modern medical ethics. However, to be effective and make a real contribution, one must be involved from a properly informed position; and that is were DoctorInternet plays an essential role.
Literally, tens of millions of people are now using the Internet each day to search for health and medical information; and currently there are over 17,000 related web-sites. The use of the Internet is playing a major role in revolutionizing health care; and you are part of this new community - one of the most rapidly growing communities in the world. The Internet is an enormously rich and powerful resource; and it will become even more so as both it and medicine continue their rapid-pace evolution.
