Where To Get More Information
Your healthcare provider is the best source of information for questions and concerns related to your medical problem. Because no two patients are exactly alike and recommendations can vary from one person to another, it is important to seek guidance from a provider who is familiar with your individual situation. We do encourage patients to take an active role in their treatment by independently researching their condition.
A number of web sites have information about general medical problems and treatments. Below we have selected several that we think are valuable, informative, reliable and reasonably up-to-date. If you have any questions about information that you read, please bring it to the attention of your physician.
