Your app is one of my favourites, I really think it is so excellent. I like how you have structured the topics, the chosen labels, and amount of info in each section. So thank you very much to everyone involved in the creation and maintenance. I really appreciate that this app is free, easy to use, and how it has consequently improved my practice and patient care.
