" Guiding patients to better online sources of medical information should be a new physician responsibility for the digital age. Not only should doctors expect and be receptive to questions patients raise from Web research, they need to proactively engage patients online in order to dispel falsehoods and guide them to legitimate sites."
This is why I feel every doctor should have their own website ! It forces them to search for reliable health websites ( to which they can link) so they can guide their patients intelligently, rather than getting upset when patients come with many sheets of internet printouts ! Even better, it will encourage thoughtful doctors who are not happy with the quality of the information they find on other sites , to publish better customised content on their own website, thus helping lots of
other patients !
