    Is there a way a search bar could be added into the lab section? Like the medication and disease section?
  • Version 18.12.1 updates annoying

    By Rosie skies
    App was great until newest auto update version 18.12.1. Now every time I open the app, I can’t access anything because “content is being updated”. Updates used to happen in the background. Not happy with new update program.

  • Great app, but not working for the past week

    By Dr Connie
    App is currently crashing every time I try to open it. Restarted phone to no avail. Currently using on iPhone XR. Hardly makes me want to continuing paying a premium for an app that doesn’t work. Please fix!
  • Outstanding App

    By galatzan
    I’ve had this app for years and it’s unparalleled when compared to other similar apps. I recommend it to all students with whom I have contact with; and I find most have anyway, and love it.

    I use this app from time to time to look up medications I’m not familiar with for patients. I’m a therapist so I run into different medications at times and find it helpful to look them up. It is a quick source. However, it could use some adjustments to the look to make it easier to look up drugs.
  • Long time user - resent problems

    By Docsue
    I have used this app for years, first when it was on a Palm Pilot. It has always been so useful. However in the last year it is less responsive, I can’t get the cursor to appear at the search line. I have to keep restarting it. The news keeps popping up when I’m in a hurry (during patient care). Loved you guys for years, please don’t let me down.
  • Solid Reference

    By Brenrick31
    I am an ICU nurse and Epocrates is now used by almost all of our team...docs included. The reason that it is as widely used for us is because it parallels the hospitals system drug comparison...only 100x faster and 200x more convenient. Not only does Big “E” update regularly but also adds the “oh gee whiz” quiz of various exotic conditions for study and research. While to some medical providers this seems trite..but we have run into many of those exotic diseases and love to know big “E” is standing by! Thanks
