Fifty Percent of Doctors Use Wikipedia

A new survey conducted by the Pew Research Center says that fifty percent of doctors used Wikipedia for health info. I guess when you visit the doctor the new questions will be a.) are you certified b.) can you bill my insurance carrier c.) read Wikipedia lately?

More than half of U.S. adults turn to the Internet when they have health or medical questions, according to a survey from the Pew Research Center. More alarmingly, a survey in April found that 50 percent of doctors turn to Wikipedia for medical info.
