Examines Causes of 'Cyberchondria' - NYTimes.com

Interesting. But what is omitted here is the fact that patients are rarely given direction by their physicians. Direction implies liability and doctors avoid it like the... plague.

So you have to use the internet if you want information, and since we're not doctors, we can make mistakes. Duh!

And last; an office visit costs $100? and a couple of hours in a cramped waiting room, filled with 'contagious' people. An internet office visit is free!
