Physicians are doing exactly what their patients have been doing for years – Googling your illness.
I don’t know how many times I’ve Googled my own symtpoms and have diagnosed myself with some rare form of fingernail cancer that only happens in third world tropics, ya know what I’m saying? I’ll never forget the day my mother called me to say that she’d been Googling the symptoms my father was having and afraid he had cervical cancer.
Forget the fact that he would require a cervix before that diagnosis could be made.
Lets hope that our doctors are a bit better at pin-pointing diseases via Google than my mother or I.
