This bare-bones program delivers on its promise, but you can just as easily use the Internet to find the same information. Free Medical Dictionary's ad-supported interface displays medical definitions drawn from various Web sites. You can get the same information, word for word, by searching certain government-based medical sites--and you won't have to look at Google ads. The program's only other feature is a Web Search button. If Free Medical Dictionary could function without the Internet, we could be a bit more enthusiastic about it. However, since it requires a Web connection to function, it's just as easy to cruise the Net. Still, since it is free, medical students and researchers who need a quick reference tool might find some benefit.
Free Medical Dictionary is a searchable glossary of medical terms from almost all specialties and fields of medicine, including general medical, pharmaceuticals, health-care equipment, health conditions, medical devices, and medical abbreviations. Some features include a built-in spell checker, free updates, easy installation, and easy uninstallation. Also, Free Medical Dictionary does not cause any pop-ups or contain any spyware. It's perfect for doctors, researchers, medical students, medical transcriptionists, nursing students, and anyone else with medical questions or a need for precise medical information.
Nothing for 2 samples : cyclic vomiting & hemiplegic migraine. Not that uncommon eg see no. of hits on Google. Wordweb (not specific medical) has as much info., loads quicker & no need for online. Amount of info. limits its use considerably.
Online a nuisance; not justified by limited info. provided; number of (not particularly unusual for a specialist dictionary) topics not found unimpressive.
The drugs I take were not in it and I would love to have it and correct the words. I don't want 2 pages of information, they limit it right, but I want more words. This is NOT trial ware which I think they sneak to you and I can't afford.
The interface is not at all user-friendly and the search function in very limited.
I am looking for a better version of a medical dictionary, this is not at all what I expected when reading the description. There are no back and forward buttons, the search function is extremely limited and not very helpful at all.
Nothing, this program is pretty useless. Way to basic for actual use.
The definition's are very basic. They don't really say much. They don't have some very common disorders or syndromes listed. I can do better by going to the Mayo Clinic website and using their search engines for any disease I want to look up.
This is not a very helpful program. Don't bother with it.
