Reviews for the Uncertain:
- Medical App Journal: 4 Stars
"BOTTOM LINE: The Infectious Disease Persiflager’s Guide is an entertaining and engaging overview of infectious diseases, which is well suited for practicing clinicians and public health researchers. The content appears accurate and is highly referenced, although some sections seem to be pending future updates. The affordable price seems well worth the assimilation of current medical content and experience-based knowledge from a practicing expert in the field.
- Mobile Infectious Disease References: From the Bedside to the Beach. Clinical Infectious Diseases.
"The Infectious Diseases Compendium would be perfect for students and residents to review treatment options prior to staffing a consultation with the attending physician or while admitting patients to a medical or surgical service."
Works with iPhone X, XS, XR, and new iPads.
Ratings and Reviews
I love the option to have access to this information for free online but you clearly have put a lot of time and effort into making a great product. Bought the app to support your devotion to providing easy and fun to read information for everyone out there who wants to learn how the ID Docs think.

Finally, the infectious disease guide that I have been waiting for. Great organization, up to date information and best of all, context, not just lists. This is a great guide and allows me to educate myself appropriately before getting an ID consult! Thank you, Mark, for doing the heavy lifting. Where do you find the time?
Would like to see some updates
Useful and well organized app. I would like to see some updates such as ICD 10… long promised in the body of the app, but have yet to arrive. Makes me wonder if the information inside the app is up-to-date as well. Still completely worth the paltry little money being charged for it.
