  • Patient and Physician Views on Online Health Communities

    Hello, my name is Akash Patel. I am a student at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. I am currently working on my thesis on the use of online health communities and their impact on enhancing patient-physician dialogue. I would like to gather data on how the abundance of health information found online has changed the dynamic in the traditional patient-physician relationship and gather the views of both patients and physicians on online health information. It would be appreciated if patients, physicians, and/or anyone who looks for health information online can take a 7 to 10 minute anonymous and confidential questionnaire. This is purely an academic project. I would be happy to share a summary of the results with those that are interested. My contact email is, should you have any questions. The link to the questionnaire is:

    Akash contacted me directly about his research. If you can help him, fantastic. It took me less than 5 minutes.
