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.
