Doctors David Samadi and Marc Siegel of the FOX News Medical A Team go over some of the pros and cons of the medical apps many smartphone users are beginning to use.

Dr. Siegel feels that there is an inherent risk involved with giving potential patients the impression that they can use such apps to diagnose themselves. According to current projections, up to 500 million smartphone users will be using medical apps of some kind by 2015 Dr. Siegel points out, and it's important for people to understand that an app is no replacement for a doctor. He goes on to praise the impact that mobile devices and their apps have had on his ability to diagnose patients.

Dr. Samadi states that medical apps are the way of the future for both doctors and patients, citing several beneficial examples ranging from appointment scheduling to the remote monitoring of vital signs.

ברצוני להודות לך מקרב לב על הטיפול המסור, האישי והמקצועי שהענקת לי מהרגע הראשון לקשר בינינו ועד עתה. הגעתי יחד עם רעייתי אסנת לניו יורק ימים ספורים לפני ביצוע הניתוח הרובוטי לכריתת הערמונית, שהתקיים ב- 4.5.2011.

Several weeks ago I found myself not waking from a nightmare but waking into one. This was after being diagnosed with cancer. My life was spiraling out of control and reaching the epitome of despair. In a true sense of the word, I was experiencing an existential crisis. At moments I even questioned whether my life was worth going forward.
