Needs tweaking. 3/5
By Eighties' Girl
Not for the squeamish. A must have for the medical professional! This app is for serious professionals, and should be respected, as the cases in here are real patients. Following the natural order of comments is confusing, however and makes it unpleasant to both comment and or follow comments. The new commenting format continually pushes the most popular comment (even if it is not relevant or correct) to the top of the page and leaves all of the other comments askew. Needs to be fixed!!
Education and Camaraderie 5/5
So many opportunities to learn about “real” world medical issues from all corners of the earth and feel the camaraderie. Administrators are wonderful and maintain privacy in strict control.
Lacks integrity 1/5
This app was fantastic to start, but has become a sad community of apparently ill-prepared providers as well as support personnel who seem to misunderstand scope of practice. I have never seen such egregious use of antibiotics as I see posted in cases on this app, as well as LPNs, RNs and EMTs who think hey have more training than they do. There are about three users who post valid, evidence-based information, otherwise it seems to be an outlet for nurses and EMTs who wish they were doctors, and bottom-of-the-barrel med students who really should know their stuff better. Embarrassing.
Can’t go past the initial page. 1/5
I was shave excited about this app, but I see (or don’t see, because I can’t access it) it needs more work. The app won’t allow me to go past the enter email page. Not a very good start if you can’t get past the initial page. Fail!
To the greatest! 5/5
Figure one is definitely the greatest app you could ever pass by! It is helping me through my medical journey a whole bunch! Much thanking and appreciation to all founders!
Please update software 4/5
By mull dizzle dog
Please update the app to make it compatible with iPhone X!!!
Great app, so educational and interesting. Needs iPhone X support though!!
LOVE THIS 5/5
I love this app. I am an Oncology nurse but I love looking at all the cases. I learn a lot from other poster’s input.
Shady. BEWARE! 1/5
Shortly after I signed up and my email address was verified, I began receiving a ton of junk email. Several from obvious foreign countries (poor grammar). They were all addressed to the username I used for Figure 1.
Great community of health worker co-education 5/5
So nice to have an app where truth in information is the goal. Nurses, Med Techs, PAs and docs from around the world in the same forum. Peer monitored for accuracy and civility.
Good resource 5/5
I love this app!!! It is a good way for me to stay on top of my game and I frequently refer my students to it for additional "real world" presentations of disease processes and injuries we discuss in class.
Excellent learning app 5/5
I love the exposure to a wide variety of subspecialties of medicine, and the comments are well moderated. It runs excellently on both of my devices.
The one medical professional app! 5/5
By Flyby 1989
This app is awesome! It's full of those which real knowledge of real medicine! It's not WebMD, it's not a show off your coolest case, it's a fantastic and limitless learning tool! I do wish they did more of the featured cases where you have the ability to choose an answer, like one a day! But other than that it's great!
Great for expanding education, student or not! Although some users have the "I know all complex" I just smile and say Bless their little hearts...
It's Awesome! 5/5
This app is great and very educational.

Educational and fun 5/5
This is a great app for education, people with a common interest and helping patients through "crowd sourcing" medical help.
If you are a healthcare professional, you will definitely love this app.
Such a great place for learning 5/5
There are so many people from every different area of medicine and from all over the world posting cases, asking questions, giving opinions, doing reviews, etc...
I feel like I am always learning something new and exciting from so many people that it has actually helped me do better in school with my studies.
I highly recommend this app to anyone who is either in school, has already graduated, or is just curious about the medical field in general. 💕

Excellent tool to learn a large amount from 5/5
By Savage reader
Being new to the medical field I am at a loss for most situations. The posts on here and the replies are helping me to understand basic treatment plans and explain why we do what we do.
Excellent learning tool.

By Christine Jirinzu
I learned a lot from figure 1. I will continue to encourage nursing students , families and friends that are into the health care field to know about Figure 1. Thank you all.
Would be five but... 4/5
By No name 11122222333334444
I can't view the comments people have made on my own case or post an additional comment about how the patient is doing/ answer questions about the case. Love this app hope this is fixed soon.
Super cool! 4/5
By Billy boy 1234567
Really neat app! Great images, with a case study attached. Real case studies from real doctors and nurses. What's not to love?
Best medical image app 5/5
This app sets the standard for all medical image forums. People from around the globe post and comment on medical images, often in search of a diagnosis or proper treatment. As a medical student I am grateful to have access to this resource.
This is the ONLY forum I've come across where health professionals from every discipline can gather to share information, teach others and learn alike. There is truly a vast wealth of knowledge contained within, and, surprisingly enough, hardly any ago to contend with! I absolutely LOVE this app, and have been a member for over 3 years.
Was a 4, now a 4.6 with changes 5/5
Excellent resource for learning and seeing what others do with medical issues that lend themselves to photographs and/or discussion.
Great Learning &a Sharing App 4/5
I really enjoy seeing the cases and pictures that are shared on this app. I learn from other healthcare providers and see things in real life photos that I might not see otherwise or very infrequently.

Med students love this app! 5/5

Figure 1 is fantastic community of physicians, students, allied health professionals, and more. Together we share interesting cases in the spirit of learning and education. I've had no problems with the apps on either my iPhone nor iPad. Always reliable, no advertisements, always professional.
Excellent learning and reviewing tool 5/5
By Gregory Raspitin
By opening submissions and comments from virtually the entire healthcare spectrum, Figure 1 provides an excellent opportunity for increasing general knowledge, and the chance to occasionally review relatively obscure disease, trauma and morbidity issues many practitioners are unlikely to otherwise encounter. The cases shared are varied and almost always interesting. The various opinions of contributors offered also help, at times, to remind participants that initial perspectives aren't always to be trusted.
Great resource to learn from! 5/5
Anatomic variants and the vast differences in which a single disease can present is slightly overwhelming! Figure 1 allows you to actually SEE the many ways disease can present, and that is great for learning especially when you are just starting out and don't have years of experience. It is also great to see how other people process the same information and allows you to think about each case differently! I love it!!!
Figure 1 rocks 5/5
Enjoying the learning.

Love this app! Most informative! 5/5
