Little Falls, New Jersey (PRWEB) April 5, 2010 -- MedPage Today is pleased to welcome KevinMD.com to MedPage Today’s Related SitesTM, effective today. This newly launched initiative from MedPage Today, the online daily breaking medical news service for medical professionals, presents the blog sites of medicine’s leading social media voices and critical thinkers while preserving their editorial independence.

The man behind KevinMD.com is Kevin Pho, MD, a primary care physician with an internal medicine practice in Nashua, New Hampshire. Writing and curating the best viewpoints of a primary care physician, Pho is social media’s leading physician voice. In his widely read medical blog, which has more than 25,000 RSS subscribers and 19,000 Twitter followers, he provides provocative commentary on breaking medical news and seeks to give readers a behind-the-scenes look at the worlds of medicine and healthcare. KevinMD.com was voted the best medical blog of 2008.

KevinMD.com is cited regularly by major media, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, British Medical Journal, SmartMoney Magazine, The Detroit Free Press, Forbes.com, NPR, LA Times, CNN, Newsweek, and American Medical News.

The Wall Street Journal called KevinMD.com a “punchy, prolific blog that chronicles America’s often dysfunctional health care system through the prism of a primary care provider,” and other bloggers have noted that “a lively comment stream on one of Kevin’s posts provides more insight on the day-to-day realities of health care than any piece of journalism can ever hope to impart.”

Forbes.com hailed KevinMD.com as a “must-read blog,” and CNN.com named KevinMD as one of its five recommended healthcare Twitter feeds.

As a member of USA Today’s board of contributors, Pho has written opinion pieces that have appeared in both national and local publications.

"I have followed KevinMD.com since its inception and have found Kevin Pho’s comments and selection of articles on point and clear-headed. A tremendous touchstone for today's clinicians' in these turbulent times," said Robert Stern, CEO of MedPage Today. "I look forward to our collaboration and his unique content as part of MedPage Today’s Related Sites™ initiative."
