Symptoms to Diagnosis access

The average wait time to get a doctor’s appointment is 3 weeks – an inaccessibility to healthcare that drives people to turn to the internet for information about their experienced symptoms. At the realm of this, WebMD has met with success but I’ve always had a problem with WebMD’s “textbook” listings of possible diagnosis for the symptoms you experience. It still leaves you to determine how the collection of your symptoms decipher the most probable diagnosis, that is if you are willing to read through several articles related to your symptoms. A major resolution of this issue is the Baltimore-based Sympcat.com that has used data from the Centers for Disease Control to generate an algorithm that will curve your step by step symptomatic input toward a listing of diagnoses – with impressive probability numbers as well.
