To the Editor.—Over the past few decades, the demand for consumer health-related information has increased dramatically. Easy-to-understand health-related information correlates with increased patient satisfaction.14 Patient education is both a science and an art. I was pleased to see the JAMA Patient Page,5 and I find it useful in educating patients. I have evaluated many patient-oriented computer software programs and databases, and I found the Patient Page to be complete, accurate, and useful.
