Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 11, 2010 -- Is sex addition real? What about addiction to plastic surgery? What 'extraordinary measures' were taken to cure Pompe disease? What's more hazardous to your health: breast cancer or lack of health insurance?

Curious minds can find the answers to these questions and more at Celebrity Diagnosis, run by a wife and husband team of physicians who have trained, taught and practiced at some of the top U.S. medical schools. Managing Partner Michele R. Berman, M.D. said that she created the site out of a need to increase health awareness and medical knowledge because: "Health care reform is leading to fundamental shifts that make consumers ever more responsible for managing their own health." Paul Levy, President and CEO of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston and author of the blog Running a Hospital, said: "Celebrity Diagnosis is well-written and informative."

Less than a year after its launch, Celebrity Diagnosis was selected as a finalist for an award as the best new medical weblog, competing against other sites sponsored by established companies and a major university and hospital system. Celebrity Diagnosis has been featured in stories in the Boston Globe, Wall Street Journal and San Diego Union-Tribune. You can vote for your favorite site at The 2009 Medical Weblog Awards.
