Scoring

Ease of Use

Disease topics follow a familiar structure with linked subtopics. Topics often include user-friendly slideshows and quizzes. Search entries lead to a densely cluttered page that makes navigation difficult.

Visual Design

The website's design is cluttered with advertisements, sponsored WebMD content, and a variety of additional features. Overall the layout is professional but too crowded.

Quality

This website includes a comprehensive list of FDA-approved drugs with information deemed accurate and authoritative. Information on supplements and herbal preparations appears to be fair and evidence-based. The website is a great source for people seeking detailed information on medications and supplements.

Credibility

Drug information is written and edited by a team of pharmacists and physicians with data provided by sources like the Food and Drug Administration, CDrugs.com, and First Databank. Qualified authors and editors are identified for all disease information articles. Dates of last review are usually given, although some are more than two years old.

  2. Informative overviews of medical diseases, conditions, procedures, and tests
