“The interface of the electronic medical record with the Diagnostic Management Team approach makes Diagnostic Mentor seamless, and allows the busy clinician to have a wealth of information about patients at their fingertips. I use it not only to make clinical decisions, but as a visual aid to explain the disease process to the patient.”
