The Spiky Haired Girl ,


Added: I do not understand all of the poor reviews over having to repurchase this app. Ongoing costs are incurred by the developer to keep the guide updated with the latest info, latest abx, etc, as well as updates for the various software platforms. Virtually ALL apps in medicine are on the subscription model for this very reason.

Original review: Clearly laid out. Easy to quickly find the info that I need in my daily practice. This app combined with UpToDate are my go-tos. (Yes, UTD has abx info, but again, the JH app is so user friendly.) Worth the asking price. This is my 3rd year to subscribe. I’ve also tried Sanford Guide, but this app’s layout was easier for me to find the info I need. YMMV.

Excellent experience

I had never before had to call with help for the products since owning them for years until now. The prompt response was unprecedented compared to other services I’ve used; the experience, knowledge and efficiency of service provided was great. By the way the experience using chat and telephone calls were phenomenal. Great job.

Unable to speak to a live agent

I am giving you a 1 star because I can’t go lower. I have been trying to reach someone about my account. It is very difficult to reach you!! It appears no one is trying to reach out to me!!!! I do not understand the billing process. My service was discontinued for what appeared to be non payment but I don’t understand why since it was paid. Then I renewed the subscription and they are now advising again, account needs to be paid. The only reason why I renewed while I was unhappy and questioned the billing process was due to the app was extremely helpful with my daily practice. I am seeking to find other apps and afterward, I will look into your business practice to see if something nefarious is going or if it’s something wrong on my side.
