“The Internet is full of information . . . and some of it is even true.”
Like many physicians, many of my patients’ families use Dr. Google to help them understand their children’s illnesses. Overall I think this is a good thing. After all, I blog about these things, and from the feedback I get, many parents appreciate what I and other physician-bloggers do. I also get a lot of requests about where to turn for reliable information. I’ve written about that before, where you can find some of my recommendations. One of my colleagues, Dr. David Tilstra, has drawn up a handy list of good websites, accompanied by a brief blurb about what each site has to offer. It’s a useful guide. The link is below.
