  • Epocrates Plus Review

    By Alikia A.
    I am a Family Nurse Practioner, but my focus is geriatrics. There is not a work day that goes by without me referencing this app. Very essential tool in my kit!
  • Bug in app

    By attending physician
    I have been using Epocrates daily for years. Recently, I noticed that when I went to alternatives, the app just turned off. This never happened before- please fix it. I really can’t function without Epocrates

  • Love Epocrates App

    By Mrsboze
    Epocrates is my go to App because it is clear and concise and to the point and I can find what I need quickly. I also have another App that is very thorough and shows you studies etc... but personally when I’m taking care of patients I don’t have time to read a study- I need clear, simple and quick answers and that is what Epocrates offers. I’ve used it since NP school and haven’t found anything else that I like better. I’ve worked in the primary care/urgent care setting. The only thing that I would want that Epocrates doesn’t offer (I don’t believe) is A little more info on IV drugs for instance “this should be a slow push over 2 minutes”... obviously we don’t do that in an outpatient setting but when I worked in the hospital those extra tips would have been helpful- I would feel like Epocrates truly had it all of they added that!
  • Slow

  • Extremely useful

  • Love it!

    By Becksplayhouse
    I use this app everyday in my practice. Great guide and quick reference tool. Easy to use. Worth every penny.
  • Great app

    By maniema12
    I’m using this app and it has been great for me. The only thing I hate about this app is the newsfeeds I often get to see first while I’m in a hurry.
  • I need Epocrates to practice medicine

    By Doodlesweaver
    I rely heavily on Epocrates for drug/drug interactions, pill IDs to show to patients to help ID pills, medication dosages/indications, etc. Epocrates is why I have to have a smart phone!
