Long before WebMD or even Yahoo, MedHelp pioneered the field of consumer health information on the Internet.
The motivating force behind the creation of medhelp is deeply personal to each of its founders. Cindy and Phil met in December of 1993, while conducting research in CompuServe's Med-Sig Forum. When Cindy and Phil met in the forum, they began discussing the difficulties each encountered in obtaining medical information, in lay terminology. Cindy mentioned that one of her dreams was to create a service where patients would be able to contact leading physicians and scientists, who could answer specific questions, in lay terminology, regarding their diagnoses.
