About

Our goal is to provide the best quality health education and information on the web.

Where our information comes from.

Health care teamAll of our information comes from reliable sources like the CDC, physician associations, nurses, doctors, HMO programs, and hospitals. Some of our information is from brochures and booklets that we publish that are given to patients in the hospital to help them understand their health condition or a particular surgery.

We write at a reading level that is simple to read and easy to understand. We want to help people better understand what is happening to them and relieve the anxiety that comes with health conditions, and the unknown of surgery and recovery.

The purpose of all information on this site is to help you learn enough so you can better talk with your doctor or health care team about your specific health situation or surgery or that of your family. If you don’t find the answer to your question, don’t give up. Your health and the health of your family is important.
