probably next only to the national institutes of health usa and the medline encyclopedia..
there are two features very atractive about the site.
1] at the bottom of every article they give a 'last updated 'date.
this tells us how latest is the information we are reading.
2] they write in place of author:mayoclinic staff.
as such the article is written and probably reviewed by a committee of scientist doctors--
see what the wikipedia encyclopedia tells-
"Mayo Clinic is a nonprofit medical practice and medical research group based in Rochester, Minnesota. It is the first and largest integrated nonprofit medical group practice in the world, employing more than 3,800 physicians and scientists and 50,900 allied health staff."
