What do you think of this Mayo Clinic community site?

We appreciate your feedback on the user experience in this Mayo Clinic site. What do you like? What areas could we improve? What additional resources would you like to see?

Hello,
Ever since I joined the online discussions I have felt the site to be very helpful. It would be nice if Mayo added a list of free and/or low cost alternative treatments for individuals all over who could benefit from doing more in their communities and less isolating. You should also advertise the site more….
Thanks

I appreciate the availability of so many different discussions. The only thing that bothers me a bit is that some people’s posts –say for instance–on Depression — appear on so many catagories…the same post on Depression in over 20 different catagories, when it has NOTHING to do with the catagory a person is researching. Apparently this happens when a person checks ALL possible catagories as what they are interested in.

In my opinion BettyAnn, I think it’s important to cross reference because a any person who is struggling with health issues (cancer, heart disease, obesity, etc.) can be at an increased risk of also getting depressed. Illnesses, no matter the specific diagnosis, can lead to other issues if one is not cautious so having so many topics to choose from is great. In my opinion.
Take care

I’ve just left Mayo, after finding my vasomotor rhinitis VMR (non-allergic rhinitis) is likely the culprit that’s making it so it’s difficult to even walk, what with the asthma which showed up at the same time about three years back. I’m so thankful to Mayo for connecting the dots that ten specialists over two years weren’t able to do. Now, we’re gonna get aggressive about the rhinitis/sinusitis, hoping that would help. But I was hopeful of finding other postings about VMR or sinusitis and how it correlates to asthma; only there were none… I’ll have to look under lungs to see if there are any postings there.

Hello Linda! so happy to hear you had a successful trip to Mayo.

I was just looking for more VMR related conversation for you and I ran into the nice post you left in the lung health group. While we wait for response from other members- would you mind sharing who your consultant is in ENT at Mayo?
