If US medical lobbies hadn’t achieved regulatory capture by blocking off public access to prescription medications in the early 20th century, it’s likely that thousands of general internists would have been replaced by tools like WebMD, the same way travel agents have largely been replaced by Expedia.
Being a general practitioner may still be a protected middleman position, but it’s becoming more fundamentally endangered all the time.
For instance, now there’s a free app called OMNIO: The exact same symptom checker, drug interaction screener, and all-in-one reference guides that doctors use. Or rather, the same references guides that doctors are trained to use in school, but neglect to consult in practice with real patients.
So unless you need access to prescription drugs that doctors have blocked you from getting, I recommend you seek higher quality, more comprehensive medical care using OMINO, instead of primitive, non-software doctors.
