Medicine X Story
Working as a medical doctor, I realised that far too many people are confused about their diagnoses, their conditions, and their treatments. The language that doctors use, and what every day people understand can be two totally different things.
We believe everyone should feel informed and empowered, so they can engage with their doctors and be involved in making medical decisions. That’s why Medicine X isn’t just another boring and complicated fact sheet – we explain medical issues through stories based on real people! It’s relatable, simple, and gives you the information you need!
We hope this helps you in your journey!
