UpToDate is recommended as a physician-level health information and research. This section allows patients and caregivers to search, but not browse, the consumer health content for information available for free. Although topics here are covered in good depth, most of the more detailed information is only available to subscribers.
MedicineNet.com, like its owner WebMD, provides medical information, newsletters, and other services for general readers. Content is created by board-certified physicians, and is recommended to consumers for its in-depth, interactive collection of general health topics. But also like WebMd, this website has an abundance of advertisements and clutter which users must dig through to find helpful content.
CVS Health Information Center has an extensive range of information about general health and wellness, drugs, tests, procedures, and surgeries. There are also more than 150 in-depth articles about common medical problems. The site is recommended to anyone who wants understandable, accurate, and updated information about virtually any health topic.
MedlinePlus - Men's Health collects a variety of resources related to men's health topics. Users will find information on testosterone, depression, osteoporosis, endocrine health, and proper nutrition. This page of MedlinePlus is recommended because its collection of materials consistently refers users to reputable sources. However, there is a lack of depth and breadth in the materials presented, and users will need to seek out other sites to augment what they find here.
Mayo Clinic - Men's Health offers a general overview of many of the most common men's health topics. The recommended information here is written and reviewed by medical professionals and is updated regularly. Unfortunately, many articles featured on the page appear randomly chosen and offer an incomplete view of men's health.
Men's Health Forum is a limited source of general health information for men. Visitors can search by topic or keyword to gain access to hundreds of relevant articles, personal stories, and answers to FAQs. There are discussion forums, multimedia resources, and printable publications. The website is more useful for browsing or as a springboard for locating more specific information.
