Great innovation - can safe you lots of time and ease your mind
I had symptoms I was worried about and used the app to see what possible cause was the reason - and if I needed to go to the ER. The app asked me quite a lot of questions (more than my doctor does!) and at the end gave a proposal for a self treatment - but also the option to see a doctor. Advice and treatment suggestion from the app was able to take away my worries about having a serious problem; with the treatment suggestion I felt comfortable and only needed to make a trip to Walgreens instead of spending hours in an ER! So for me it worked great and I can highly recommend the app-specifically for a first evaluation of what the cause of the symptoms/pain might indicate and for what to do next.
This app has it's pros and cons. While it has a very easy to use and organized layout with good questions, it is just simply incorrect at accurately gauging what's ailing you if it's not an incredibly common thing. This app is completely forgetting that rarer illnesses exist. When it gets to a certain point without a good idea of what you're talking about, it can't seem to stay on one topic. I went in complaining of some dizziness and it told me I had afib. I tried putting in the back pain that's been plaguing me for literal years, and it decided it had to be a kidney stone or bladder problems. I don't know what's worse, having a doctor shrug at me, or having this thing get confused and neglect the biggest symptom. Honestly, I'll just stick to googling. I will admit, this app is definitely a good fit for you if you have common cut and dry illnesses and symptoms. But if a doctor or your own research hasn't been able to diagnose your illness properly, I'm sorry to say that this app won't do it for you. I've gotten more accurate results from WebMD.
Helpful App for patients
As an ER physician I wanted to try this app to see how it would work for a patient with abdominal pain. It asked a whole bunch of questions and was able to narrow it down each time to the diagnosis I was aiming for. I did it twice and it also gave me a probable % chance it was this diagnosis and that I should seek medical evaluation. I know people google their symptoms all the time but this is a very intuitive app that provides a good working differential diagnosis for a patient. Of course nothing is guaranteed but it worked well for me on my attempts.
