Dr Google - use of Google as a diagnostic aid

Dr Google - use of Google as a diagnostic aid: " As internet access becomes more readily available in outpatient clinics and hospital wards, the web is rapidly becoming an important clinical tool for doctors. The use of web based searching may help doctors to diagnose difficult cases."

This study, published in the prestigious medical journal, BMJ, shows that Google can be helpful for solving medical googlies ! Of course, the caveat, GIGO still applies, which is why having a good doctor ( who know what to look for ) is still so important.
