Help Your Doc…Help Yourself! believes that safe and effective healthcare is the result of informed patients who take responsibility for their health. Research is beginning to show that patients can and should play an active role in their own health. This site was started so that individuals can be armed with information as well as tools that will guide the process of diagnosis and improve the safety of their level of care.
This site is not about self-diagnosis, it’s about being a positive force of change in your own health while working with trained clinicians.
