Ratings and Reviews
I was looking for medical Australian advice and this app came up on a search engine. So far it’s been pleasantly helpful. I didn’t know this existed.
Needs the option for multiple symptoms
No symptoms available for low temperature, feeling cold, cold to the touch or hypothermia.
Also would be helpful to put in a few symptoms not just one. For example I’m trying to look up low temperature in a child and vomiting. All I can put in is vomiting but even if I do select another there’s only the option for one or the other.
Maybe take a look at webMD for example. Although their app etc is American it has a much better symptom checker. Would also be good to have a manikin to select areas if you aren’t sure what to type to search so can search by area.
Health Check - very helpful
After being ill for the past 4 days & knowing my GP is away for another 2 days, I wanted confirmation as to whether I should go to the ED or wait. Advice was quick, detailed, accurate & helpful. Only negative is the App states FREE but ITunes charged me $1:00. ??
