    I use Google quite often at work to look up meds and conditions that I have never heard of, or I’m too old to remember what they are. That aspect of having an infinite amount of information is quite helpful, but what do you think of your patients using Google. I have so many people coming into the ER thinking they have some rare, fatal disease, just because it is on the differential list for their symptoms of headache, fever, sore throat.

    Medical Googling by patients, good or bad?
