It’s not everyday we get to listen to a CrowdMed patient success story, via podcast, moderated by a CrowdMed Medical Detective and Dr. Lisa Sanders, the real life Dr. House! We’re biased, of course, but we found the real life medical mystery and prognosis fascinating. Listen for yourself and let us know if you agree: https://soundcloud.com/replyall/42-blindspot
Towards the end of the podcast, Reply All Producer Sruthi Pinnamaneni asks Dr. Sanders, “do you think ‘Hope’ could have done something better than going to CrowdMed after seeing the series of Doctors?” Dr. Sanders replies, “I think it was a reasonable thing to try. I think CrowdMed has an interesting perspective on this.”
