[From Elizabeth, Atlanta, USA] You know how when you're sick and you go to the doctor, they have fill out those long medical history forms and your minds goes blank? Well my mind actually goes into this "deja vu" state. I remember some things but I'm not real clear on some of the details. Like what meds am I taking, what was the date of my surgery (late summer/early fall 1980 something), do you have any allergies etc.? I totally become spastic. You know its coming but fail to prepare thinking "Hey I'll remember that". Not.
Well PalmAddicts let me tell you about a little gem that packs a punch and saves you the trouble of "brain freeze". That diamond is called Doctor DB (The Medical Database) created by Rodrigo Marbán 2004 and can be found at Palmgear.com as freeware.
This program does what the name says and more! Not only is it a doctor database but has the ability to keep track of your allergies, medications, clinics; surgeries and appointments.
*when you create a list of medicine(s) you're taking. You indicate the dose, route, frequency, and number of refills. You then set reminders for taking your meds on time. This reminder also transfers to your datebook with the alarm (set to your default alarm minutes) mine is 5 minutes before scheduled time. And an attached note that let's you know that Doctor DB (The Medical Database) set it for you.
*when you create an appointment(s) you not only input the date and time but you get a drop down list that has all your doctors listed and you just choose one. You also have a place to add a note and set an alarm. The best part of this feature is it transfers the appointment to your datebook application as well (alarm and all)!
This basic little program allows you to have your medical information at your fingertips as well as your family. When the moment arises you'll be prepared. So say goodbye to "brain freeze" and hello to peace of mind. It is certainly worth its weight in gold if you need a minimal yet complete medical database.
The next time a new doctor asks me to fill out that medical history form (in a couple of weeks), I'll breeze through it with time to enjoy a few chapters of my audiobook. :)
