These pages also include a listing of Information Clearinghouses operated by the Institutes and Offices -- people you can talk to for further information. A large percentage of the questions about NIH on-line resources can be answered by browsing the listings in this area or by using the NIH Search Engine. The information and e-mail services on this Web site cannot provide personalized medical advice to individuals about their condition or treatment. This site provides users with information to better understand their health and their diagnosed disorders. The resources on this site should not be used as a substitute for professional medical care and we urge you to work with your medical care providers for answers to your personal health questions. They also do not rate or provide referrals to physicians or health care facilities. Such activities are usually handled by State or local Governments.
