NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- (http://www.myprgenie.com/ ) -- Times certainly have changed. If you were to poll Americans 10 years ago and ask them where they found their doctors – most would tell you that they found their current healthcare provider in their insurance plan directory or through the recommendation of a friend or family member; today that is not the case. Eighty percent of all U.S. Internet users, or 59 percent of all American adults, look up health information online, according to a report released by the Pew Research Center.
