    The doctors favour using the internet search engine
    Using internet search engine Google can help doctors diagnose tricky cases, researchers have said.
    A team of Australian doctors Googled the symptoms of 26 cases for a study in the New England Journal of Medicine.

    In 15 cases, the web search came up with the right diagnosis, the paper published on the British Medical Journal website reports.

    The authors say Google can be a "useful aid", but UK experts said the internet was "no replacement" for doctors.

    Certainly it is helpful to do some good research on different issues.But that's true it cannot replace the Doctors.

    But I would have expected doctors to have access to a superior reference source to information contained in Google.
