Shaun, we wholeheartedly agree with the utility of the two options you cited. Our physician founders have used and continue to use both of those resources for their clinical practice with great results. CurbsideMe is not aiming to replace either a comprehensive medical reference tool or individual experienced physician experts. Rather, we feel there are gaps in our knowledge base that CurbsideMe can help fill. For example, did you know that a large majority of physicians feel that they have achieved or exceeded their early professional goals set before they even began medical school? (http://www.curbsideme.com/question/public/253/who-are-you/) Insights like these are not usually the focus of academic discussions, but we believe they can have utility for the imaginative. Thank you for the feedback.
