Madyjules ,


To have a resource as renowned & respected as the Merck Manual at my fingertips via this app; is tremendously reassuring. The quality of care I can provide is improved when someone presents with unusual / rare signs & symptoms and my mind &/or my body is tired and a decision I'm going to suggest for a patient lacks that good gut feeling,"... this is the right path." Of course, I still present my assessments to a superior... but, in the future, I will be that senior clinician.
A resource such as this is precious, because it allows me to give my best to every person who presents to me for care.
Even though our hours "on the wards" during the years of internship, residency & fellowship have improved (compared to what they were 10 years & earlier) YET the total hours are still quite long when you recall the time that must be dedicated in preparation for clinical seminars, going on Rounds with Attendings, and more. So there will always be tired physicians and surgeons in training, thanks again for this great resource of information.

A helping hand to calm during times of distress

When I found I could get the Merck Pro on my phone I was thrilled. I have referred to the Merck Manual for years and now have it readily available to answer questions from family and friends is wonderful. Wit it being able to make updates quickly and having more information at my finger tips is great. I am a retired RN and the family turns to me when they are unsure of how to approach the doctor for a problem. I can help them understand the problem and what to ask the doctor. Thank you for being with me and my family.

Don’t like the newest update

Please bring back the older version before the latest update. It was better than this one. Before, the sections of each topic can be collapsed for easier navigation to the section of interest. Now, this is removed and if I want to, for example, skip to the treatment of a disease, I have to keep scrolling down. Also, there are random symbols that keep showing in between the text disturbing the reading process. Not to mention that pictures have become harder to see and sometimes don’t show at all. In the night mode, the headlines become indistinguishable from the content text which is also annoying. I really like Merck Manual and I want to continue using it but these issues are making me stay away from it currently.
