    best medical website for evidence?

    I guess I need to print out what the different medical conditions are since the doctors notes don't really describe them in their letters. What medical website would have the most reliable info in the governments opinion? Or do you think this is really needed? Want to print up info on high blood pressure, depression, MS, craniosynostosis, and selective mutism.

    I don't know if there's necessarily a "best" but you might want to stick with ones that are well respected (an independent blogger writing about a disease/condition can be seen differently than something like the Mayo Clinic or the American Cancer Association, for example).

    I have read that goverment sources are always preferable, even over well-known sources such as the previously mentioned Mayo Clinic...I used the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and NIH (National Institutes of Health) for information - both goverment entities. That being said, the embassy removed some of my background info saying it was unnecessary since we had doctors' notes/records. Made me mad but there's nothing I can do about it . I wasn't there or I would have argued with them!
