Medicine X Story
Working as a medical doctor, I realized that far too many patients are confused about their diagnoses, their conditions, and their treatments. There’s a disconnect between the language that doctors use and what everyday people understand. This can make you feel incredibly hopeless and anxious at an often very difficult time in your life.
We believe there is a better way. We believe all patients – regardless of age, gender, culture or condition – should have access to medical information they can understand! Everyone should feel informed and empowered in order to engage with their doctors and be involved in making medical decisions.
This is why Medicine X was created.
