Internet and its implications for health care providers: findings from
the First Health Information National Trends Survey.

(Conclusion: The Health Information National Trends Survey data portray
a tectonic shift in the ways in which patients consume health and
medical information, with more patients looking for information online
before talking with their physicians.)

Cartwright VA. Ophthalmology and vision science research. Part 1:

reasonable measure of journal research quality only (my emphasis) if
used correctly.)
