(CBS4) Who is the most popular doctor in America? Why, Dr. Google of course.

In 2019, more than 93 million of us turned to the good doctor for medical advice and information.

So, what did we want to know?

This week, Google shared the ten health questions people searched for the most from January 2019 to early December 2019.

Now comes the tricky part. Dr. Google can be a fine source of health care information, but you still need to be careful youre not referred to a quack. Avoid sites that want personal information, want to sell you something, or offers a magic remedy. And by all means, EXTREME black box warnings about going to a chat room, or a social media group for info or advice.

Here are a few of my favorite health sites for patients:

my.clevelandclinic.org/health

hopkinsmedicine.org/patient_care/

mayoclinic.org/symptom-checker/

nationaljewish.org/health-insights(Especially good for asthma and other respiratory conditions.)

There are many, many more great sites. Ask your doctor for a recommendation. A nurse line is an added resource for advice.

And dont forget, when it comes to Dr. Google, a second opinion is always a good idea.
