Online Resources

The medical team at Palm Springs Family Care is often asked where to find reliable and comprehensive information about primary health care, preventive medicine, chronic and infection diseases, and general health and wellness issues. There are thousands of websites offering useful health care information, resources and services. Be careful not to use information sourced from the Internet over an actual doctor or health professional’s advice, diagnosis or prescription.

The following websites are great places to start any health care topic search.
