    • “GIDEON is a very useful source, especially in generating differential diagnoses on difficult to identify infectious disease patients with travel history.  I use it also to clarify unusual disease patterns and understand disease presentations.  GIDEON is a great and handy resource on the web.”

      D. Scott Smith, MD, MSc., DTM&H, Chief of Infectious Disease & Geographic Medicine, Kaiser Redwood City, CA and Adj Asst. Professor, Stanford University Medical School

    • “A user-friendly, accurate and continually updated medical and microbiological resource, not only for for clinicians, but anyone wishing to know about global disease endemicity and treatment. A must for anyone who has anything to do with infectious diseases.”

      John S Marr, MD, Virginia Department of Health

    • “It is impressive” 

      M.D., Vanderbilt University

    • “The microbiology module is user friendly and gives a very useful guide in order of importance discriminatory tests in the identification of microorganisms. GIDEON will no doubt find a very good use in resource-limited settings like Nigeria.”

      Dr. Oladiipo Aboderin, Obafemi Awolowo Univesity, Ile-Ife, Nigeria

    • “It’s a wonderful product…”

      Dr. Arthur S. Dover

    • “As useful as GIDEON is for developing a comprehensive differential diagnosis list for patients with presumed infectious diseases, I have found the microbiology module most valuable for guiding laboratory workers in the identification of unusual and atypical culture isolates. The constantly updated list of microorganism taxonomic name changes is also extremely helpful.”

      Joseph M. Campos, PhD, DABMM Director, Microbiology Laboratory and Laboratory Informatics and Professor, Departments of Pediatrics, Pathology, and Microbiology/Tropical Medicine

    • “It is really amazing, excellent job!!”

      Dr. Mathias Pletz, Emory University

    • “As a biomedical informatician with an interest in the study of infectious diseases, the GIDEON interface provides an easy-to-use and clearly organized access to knowledge that, in many ways, would not be available in any other manner without significant investment of time and funding. GIDEON essentially pays for itself as a resource for any scientist studying infectious disease.”

      Indra Neil Sarkar, PhD Bioinformatics Associate, American Museum of Natural History

    • “Increasing numbers of medical school faculty are now working in sub-Saharan Africa through President Bush’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Because few of us have experience in tropical medicine, there is a need to ready access to resources in tropical medicine for diagnostic and treatment purposes. Last year I became acquainted with GIDEON online and have found it very helpful.”

      Wm. Christopher Mathews, M.D., MSPH, Director, Owen Clinic, Professor of Clinical Medicine, UCSD Medical Center

    • “As we work in 61 countries, the extensive Epidemiology section has been most helpful to those of us who deal with diverse and sometimes obscure medical problems.  At Direct Relief International, we have been searching for a vehicle that will aid health care workers around the world with diagnosis and treatment, and GIDEON  has been most helpful.”

      William Morton-Smith, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Direct Relief International

    • “We often seem to get the difficult patients, including people and children who have never had any vaccines and still want to go to infectious Third World countries. It is so helpful to give them figures of vaccine preventable diseases the last year on record as well as the other situations, such as leishmaniasis, etc. The graph is good in that it is easy to see at a glance if figures are declining or growing and we always let a patient see at last one graph appropriate for their situation. But the exact figures really hit home with them.

      GIDEON is so helpful and if I only had the money to buy one travel health program, I would throw out the others and keep yours.
      As I am preparing and researching a country’s infectious disease situation for a client, sometimes I am on GIDEON for a while, going through each disease one by one. It is really helpful! And then Dr Carroll really relies on your input for the post-travel patients we see as well. We are the only ones who see these patients in a radius of a hundred miles at least. We give the credit to GIDEON but it sure makes us look good! :-)”
