Reviews for the Uncertain:

- Medical App Journal​: 4 Stars

"BOTTOM LINE: The Infectious Disease Persiflager’s Guide is an entertaining and engaging overview of infectious diseases, which is well suited for practicing clinicians and public health researchers. The content appears accurate and is highly referenced, although some sections seem to be pending future updates. The affordable price seems well worth the assimilation of current medical content and experience-based knowledge from a practicing expert in the field.


- Mobile Infectious Disease References: From the Bedside to the Beach.​ Clinical Infectious Diseases.

​"The Infectious Diseases Compendium would be perfect for students and residents to review treatment options prior to staffing a consultation with the attending physician or while admitting patients to a medical or surgical service."
