Dear Paul: I understand your feelings about Physician's Online, and I also prefer the other versions of MEDLINE. However, I have given physicians the information on Physicians Online, but I tell them: 1. That I am not recommending it 2. That it is NOT free, that drug companies are subsidizing it, and 3. We have a CD-ROM (KnowledgeServer by Aries) that I highly recommend. I also give them other low-cost dial-up sources of MEDLINE: Our CD-ROM network if they have a MacIntosh, or GratefulMed if they do not. I do not feel that I am selling Physicians Online, only telling our doctors what is out there.
