VisualDx in Practice

“Recently I used VisualDx to help me diagnose erythema nodosum in a 47-year-old woman with painful red nodules on her shins. It made me feel more comfortable with my diagnosis, and I appreciated the management tips. The patient was amazed at the technology at my fingertips and assured that she was getting the most up-to-date and knowledgeable care. Thanks for all the information and user friendliness you have built into your app.” – Dr. Elliot Davidson, Akron General Medical Center, Family Medicine Program Director
