The idea for thepocketfamilydoctor.com stemmed from a growing need for Indian websites that provide authentic and well researched patient information.
Patients are often unaware of their own illnesses and lack the access to resources that are evidence based and yet easily understandable.
We hope to create a compilation of reliable high quality articles concerning various aspects of primary health care contributed by like-minded health care professionals
The information is presented with relevant references and reliable links for further reading.
We hope this small step will help in improving patient knowledge and health in the community.
