Practical Gastroenterology Launches Digital App

"A Token of Our APPreciation(C) for Our Loyal Readers"

WESTHAMPTON BEACH, NY--(Marketwire - May 23, 2012) - PRACTICAL GASTROENTEROLOGY, the peer-reviewed journal of choice for GI physicians, has launched its free digital journal on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Marketplace, ensuring its readership enhanced access to the publication.

"We are excited to announce the launch of our digital version of Practical Gastroenterology," states Vivian Mahl, Publisher of Practical Gastroenterology. "We know how vital it is to our readers to stay current in their daily practice. We developed our mobile app with this in mind, striving to enrich our readers' experience and increase their access to important medical information ahead-of-the-curve. Whether on the go or with a patient, doctors can now find the practical information they want at their fingertips. Practical Gastroenterology is now accessible to anyone: family physicians, internal medicine doctors, nurses, physician assistants, and consumers with an interest in gastrointestinal issues."

Andrew Roorda, M.D., a board certified gastroenterologist, said, "The Practical Gastroenterology app is free and extremely user friendly. I downloaded the app onto my iPhone and iPad and it is an exact replica of the PG journal that I receive in the mail. I can now use my iPhone and iPad to read articles relevant to my practice. It's great because I can click directly onto any website address in the journal for further information. The references are hyperlinked as well, so I have immediate access to the full referenced articles. This saves me a lot of time from separately searching on the web."
