    First of it's kind.

    In typical medical books, you look under the diagnosis and THEN read about how to diagnose it. But in reality, patient presents with signs, symptoms or abnormal labs and we need to work towards a diagnosis. This is where Instant Workup come in to play and is truly one of a kind. I would recommend this to all medical professionals.
