In Reply.—We appreciate the feedback about the JAMA Patient Page and hope that the page is being well used for its intended purposes—to help facilitate communication between patients and health care professionals and to educate patients about medical issues.
We are attempting to provide accurate, helpful medical information while staying within the constraints of a single page. With the space limitation, it is an ongoing challenge to determine what information to include that would be helpful to patients. Making the information readable and understandable, while also being thorough and accurate, are major goals in producing the page on a weekly basis.
