Good idea. Terrible app.

Extremely slow and buggy. Have the latest iPhone but guidelines would take 2-3 minutes to load, crashing the app half of the time. They need to update this app.

New Update is GOLD!

It looks like the developer recently released a new update and changed the interface. It made the app super easy to use and definitely improved the usability. I haven’t experienced any crashes since the update. I love being about to access all the relevant treatment information I need directly on my phone. Thanks Guideline Central!
