Doctors add expert insights and comments about websites in Google Sidewiki

From Google:

"As you browse the web, it's easy to forget how many people visit the same pages and look for the same information. What if everyone, from a local expert to a renowned doctor, had an easy way of sharing their insights with you about any page on the web? What if you could add your own insights for others who are passing through?

Google Sidewiki allows you to contribute helpful information next to any webpage. Google Sidewiki appears as a browser sidebar, where you can read and write entries along the side of the page."

Here are two examples how doctors add expert insights and comments about websites in Google Sidewiki:

- Michael Roizen

Steven Nissen

Both are prominent physicians at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic.
