As an independent health portal we want to help you to actively influence your health and to get involved in the healing process. We want to encourage you to have more personal responsibility and at the same time to give you the necessary knowledge, because only a well-informed patient can assess his or her state of health and be involved in treatment and decision-making processes.
We offer a variety of information on all questions relating to health and well-being. Our aim is to facilitate direct connections and discussions between patients suffering from the same conditions. In doing so, we serve a broad and detailed range of content - in addition to medical information, you will find current health-related offers, such as nutrition, pregnancy & birth or sports.
The medical information on FellowPatient.com does not replace the doctor's visit or the professional consultation and does not encourage self-diagnostics or self-treatment. Rather, the contents serve to educate and create transparency - because "knowledge keeps you healthy".
Last but not least, you can actively participate in our community and interact with other users on various topics. This type of online discussion can not and should not replace a doctor's visit. Our website does not provide personalized, individualized health counseling - rather, it provides general information about prevention and treatment of certain diseases and informs about a healthy lifestyle.
Moreover, our forums are not reviewed by doctors and so you should not rely on advice given by other members with respect to any healthcare matters. Always speak to your doctor before acting and in cases of emergency seek appropriate medical assistance immediately.
