Doctors and their patients are benefiting from Sermo's unique capacity to enable collaborative discussion and clinical problem solving among physicians. A general surgeon from MI wrote, "I very much appreciated the excellent help that I received on my difficult thyroid cancer case. My patient was also aware that the Sermo physician network was helping. He lives in a very rural area and is of limited means. He extends his heartfelt thanks to all who participated."
"With the help of Sermo, my 94 y/old patient was spared the stent!" a doctor of Family Medicine wrote reflecting on his case being solved. He then added, "I agree (with the previous doctor)… patients love it when I tell them I'm going to ask some online colleagues for help."
