Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) November 2, 2006
Doclopedia, the online personal medical history organizer, has added a new section dedicated to breast cancer. Patients with a history of breast cancer are prompted by a series of specific questions regarding diagnosis, surgical procedures, medical tests, and even treatments.
"Breast cancer is a very complex disease, with the potential to involve nearly every organ system. When meeting a new doctor it would be hard for even the most sophisticated patient with breast cancer to recall all the details her doctor needs without coming to the doctor's office prepared," said Doclopedia's Dr. Dan Lieberman, M.D. The new breast cancer template on http://www.doclopedia.com walks a woman through all the details the doctor will want while she is still at home and has time to get the information together. "Doclopedia helps a woman prepare for her interview with her doctor, an interview which could save her life. When she completes the online interview for breast cancer on http://www.doclopedia.com a woman will have an accurate, portable version of her history to take to new doctors, distribute to her loved ones, or use in case of emergency."
Doclopedia allows patients the comfort of being able to record their history online, which enables breast cancer survivors the time they need to record an accurate and relevant history. Survivors of breast cancer often find it tiresome repeating themselves every time they go to a new doctor. By helping women bring the best information to the doctor, doclopedia aims to help patients receive the best possible treatment. Using http://www.doclopedia.com, patients create and control their own personal electronic health history. Reports can be printed for new doctor visits.
Doclopedia is part of the consumer revolution in healthcare. In addition to organizing health histories, the free site creates an electronic marketplace in which patients can search for doctor services, and medical tests based on price and location. The site is currently active in Phoenix, Arizona.
