The Doctors Lounge is one of the oldest online communities supplying medical resources for physicians, medical students and allied clinical professionals. It was founded April 2000, by two physicians, Dr. Tamer Fouad and Dr. Yasser Mokhtar, who aspired to create an online medical community that would provide its visitors with free medical consultation. One of the things I like about this community is that it clearly distinguishes advertising from editorial content with a special seal and any sponsored content is denoted as such. Since its inception, its members  have written more than 10,000 medical articles and answered more than 30,000 medical/health questions.

Why a blog post about the Doctors Lounge? It’s another avenue for your physicians to distribute medical content and build the stature of your organization’s brand. Registering is easy. You simply go to the website and fill out a Medical Volunteer Registration Form. Once accepted, your physician can review articles, contribute content, and participate in the medical forum. There are also advertising opportunities within the site.

Doctors Lounge is another online resource that healthcare marketers should know about. So check it out and see what you think.

  1. Some other great money saving ideas for healthier foods that I recommend are to purchase your products directly form the farmers.

    We purchase most of our meat in bulk directly from the farmers(organic) and it is usually much cheaper then buying from the grocery store.

    We also visit a local farm near our house to purchase fresh veggies (ones that we don’t grow at home) from spring until fall.

    Items like whole wheat flours, old fashioned oats, and whole grain cereal (shredded wheat types, bran flakes) can be purchased on sale and with coupons for some great savings.

    As far as the Ragu, it is chalked full of lycopenes (which prevent cancer.) Each 1/2 cup serving is 70 calories, 1.5g fat, 18% of the daily allowance of sodium, 2 grams of fibre and a little over a tsp of sugar. I have no problem feeding it to my family once a week with 100% whole wheat pasta and homemade meatballs (chicken/lean beef).

    Yes, I eat a pretty healthy healthy diet and do not purchase things like potato chips, soda, prepacked gummy snacks/lunch cakes ect just because they are free with coupons and sales like on the show.

    I do pay a bit more for things like lots of fresh fruit, veggies and organic nut butters ect but what I save on things like toiletries, paper products and cleaning supplies help purchase these items

    Also don’t forget to email for coupons. I just received coupons for milk, salad and fresh berries by emailing the manufacturer directly and inquiring about coupons.

      Thanks for your comment Deanna! It sounds like you approach things very differently from the people they’ve been featuring on Extreme Couponing! By the way, in my small backyard garden I have have organic tomatoes ripening, several varieties of peppers, squash and cucumbers – along with a nice collection of herbs.
