It's the place to talk about real world medicine.
It’s the virtual doctors’ lounge.
It's the meeting of medical minds and hearts.
It’s the voice of physicians.
“I can speak freely because I am anonymous. I don't have to worry about my words getting back to a hospital administrator.”
“Being a semi-anonymous environment actually allows for more honest and useful advice and comments. I get enough daily BS, PC crap in real life. I don't need more in the virtual life.”
“You can’t just Google medicine, you need a human source. We have to go beyond ‘cookbook’ medicine, and seek reasonable, experienced minds to think through difficult and diverse cases.”
“If it was real life, we’d all hang out.”
“Medicine is fun, when it’s without the intrusion of multiple third parties. We love posting cases on SERMO...we get to practice medicine even if we don’t get paid for it.”
“Doctors don't have the time to come to a real doctor's lounge any more. On SERMO we can ask questions and share our lives and frustrations. Whenever we feel stressed out, we come to get support and find it. Any time of the day.”
“I actually shared a medical mistake for the benefit of my peers on SERMO...but would not have done so if I was identified.”
“Regulators are forcing us to comply with rules and docs hardly get a voice. We’re made to feel isolated and alone. It’s overwhelming but SERMO is THE place where we can finally talk and feel like we are not alone. We know that we’re all in the same boat.”
“I think SERMO has nailed it. If I want to read a clinical discussion, I can do that. If I want to read something funny, I can do that. If I want to get into politics, I can do that. If I need help with a patient, I have a place to do that.”
“Had I not read a post on SERMO, I would not have nailed the diagnosis.”
“These days doctors are super busy and don’t have time to stop what they are doing and find a colleague with the appropriate expertise.”
