PATIENT EDUCATION

 

THE INTERNET CAN BE A POWERFUL EDUCATIONAL TOOL, BUT IT IS ALSO AN OPEN-SOURCE SYSTEM, WHERE ANYONE AND EVERYONE CAN CONTRIBUTE. MANY SITES MAY BE INACCURATE OR OUTDATED. AS WE WANT OUR PATIENTS TO LEARN AS MUCH AS THEY WISH ABOUT THEIR CONDITIONS, WE HAVE COLLECTED WHAT WE CONSIDER TO BE SOME OF THE BETTER SITES. OF COURSE, WE CAN'T GUARANTEE THEIR COMPLETE ACCURACY. AFTER REVIEWING INFORMATION, PLEASE CALL TO ARRANGE A FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENT TO DISCUSS ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS. PLEASE ALSO LET US KNOW OF OTHER GOOD SITES YOU WOULD LIKE US TO CONSIDER ADDING.
