Don't be a jerk to your partner.

As I learn about the e-patient movement, I sometimes encounter pathetic stories that aren't helping anything. Time's tormented When the Patient is a Googler is a worst-case nightmare - a doctor whose first exposure to an intense googler was a patient who (with her three year old) would be a nightmare in any office visit, with or without Google.

Don't do that. The point of the e-patient movement is to create partnership with your providers.

If your physician is new to the idea, share, don't clobber.
