UpToDate: UpToDate is an online medical information resource where patients can go to learn about a medical condition, better understand management and treatment options, and find information to have a better dialogue with their physicians. UpToDate is used by the majority of academic medical centers in the United States, and many clinicians worldwide. I have found this to be one of the most useful resources for my patients.

ACG: American College of Gastroenterology. Many gastrointestinal disorders are reviewed here. This is another good starting point for many patients.
