  • Great resource at the bedside

    By Sarah'sScott
    I frequently turn to Epocrates for drug interactions - it is quite helpful. It is also helpful for quickly reviewing medications I am not familiar with. The other portions -Guidelines, ICD-10 and Disease References are also quite helpful on the fly. It is my go to reference in the room with patients.
  • Beware falsification of credentials hack

    By AZ_Doc
    Several years ago I registered with this company and noticed my credentials were wrong raising questions by my employers. Epocrates blamed it on the AMA. The AMA had my correct credentials. Not sure what game they are playing so I closed my account. Recently I stupidly registered with them again to try this app again, and their site could not recognize my credentials. I then noticed on Google that my credentials were changed by numerous web sites to incorrect listings again. Clearly these “ratings” sites are in cahoots ( buying or sharing)with epocrates being given or creating false credentials by epocrates and then putting them on Google search indicating a person is not a physician. Epocrates is either deliberately falsifying credentials or unable to correct their incorrect information. I just signed up with them after years of complaints and within weeks my false information reappeared on Google. Think Facebook is bad, beware of your information if you voluntarily provide this company your credentials. When I forced them to close AND ERASE my information years ago all the false information disappeared from Google.
  • Would be nice, but...

    By Cdh41
    Won’t open. Is this what I’m paying for??
  • Always room for improvement

    By jevoan
    Can get better with the full version. Would like them to be able to transfer favorites and notes when you get a new device or among devices. Had to upgrade my phone and lost my favorites and notes that I had stored in medication notes.
  • Irritating pop up news feed ad

    By deepsoul13
    I’m not the only user to complain about this, but I have mentioned many times already. The initial “news feed” pop ad that opened every single day is extremely irritating. Sometimes it’s delayed and pops up while I’m in the middle of typing a drug. Then I end up clicking on some random link and have to spend time backing out of that and starting over. Get rid of that useless screen once and for all.
  • Great app but!

    By mgnwsbamhae
    I am a resident physician and I rely on Epocrates heavily for my daily duties. I am already a paid user, and I was ok with that because of how useful the app is so I didn’t mind. It always bothered me that the first screen is always the newsfeed. I would like to be able to access whatever section I want without so many taps on the screen. But to add insult to injury, And what I do mind, is the introduction of “new mandatory ads” of certain “app sponsors” that pop up when I first open the app. As if what I am already paying as a user is not enough, and in order for the “new ads” to go away, I have to pay more. I would prefer the developers increasing the general subscription fee rather than introducing the ridiculous ads that pop up in the welcome screen or even introducing the higher category subscription. It is just so counterproductive and it takes an awful lot of time to get to what I want now with so many taps. More and more I am opting to use different apps like lexicomp, for which my institution offers a free of charge subscription, minus all the ads of course.
  • Used to be great, now unusable

    By Rdman33
    Was one of my favs. Now the login screen does not allow pasting password from security products like 1Pass (must type them in which precludes using complex passwords) then fails to login, falsely claiming "no internet connection." Bring back the old version!
  • Not making an account

    By XxFormula350xX
    Can’t use the app without making an account and giving your email. This is stupid. I get enough junk emails already
  • Hangs up!

    By typhoon6223
    Annoying! I’m paying for this app. Fix it or give me my money back.
  • Great customer support!

    By Elenasd10
    I purchased the upgrade a different way than I had in the past and things weren’t working. I emailed the support team and they were able to resolve the problem very quickly!
