American Medical News mentions Dr. Joseph Kim in a smartphone article

American Medical Association published an article titled, "Who made the app for that? Tale of 3 app developers."
Behind every smartphone application is someone with an idea. Here are people who created some of the most popular medical, health and wellness apps.

  1. Dr. Gregory Moore
  2. Dr. Pascal Pfiffner
  3. Dr. Pieter Kubben
I come in when the writer asks the question: "Are apps always reliable?"

In some cases, junk apps remain popular among consumers who find them fun or entertaining.   Will the FDA and FCC intervene to regulate medical and health apps?
