  1. This is an amazing post Howard. Doctors and physicians need to change the way they view patients. Most patients are looking for information online, and not just information but information that they believe could be helpful to them. Social media has become part of our lives as doctors and if we don’t learn to embrace it, our patients will not be there to embrace us too.
