The 25 Doctors vision is to be a global, trusted and best source of simple, relevant and accurate health information.
25 Doctors is owned and operated by 25 Doctors LLC. The brand was founded in October 2015 with the goal of being a credible source of health information. We started by sharing viral health facts on social media. Later, we launched this website to expand our reach.
Our team is made up of seasoned professionals who work together to ensure that you have the most accurate and relevant health information at the palm of your hands.
Our Editorial Policy
We want to make health information easier, trustworthy, and more accessible. We have three main principles that govern our activities as a brand. We like to call it the SAR principle.
SAR stands for:
- Simplicity: We hate medical jargon, so we strive to ensure any piece of content is extremely easy to understand.
- Accuracy: We only produce mainstream, scientifically-backed, and medically correct health information. Our leadership team is made up of licensed healthcare practitioners, so we are bound by a code to serve you only trustworthy information.
- Relevance: We try to produce and deliver content in meaningful, relevant ways. We try to make our tone friendly and use some graphics to deliver our message.
We are passionate about accurate health information, so we adhere to strict editorial standards. We ensure that all our articles are written by trained and licensed professionals. Also, we only reference evidence-based, peer-reviewed publications, reputable medical associations or government health websites as our source of information. These references can usually be seen at the end of our medical articles.
To ensure our content is also externally regulated, we subscribe to the 8 principles of the Health On The Net Foundation and have a valid certificate. The principles are:
- Financial disclosure
- Advertising policy
You can check the validity of our membership to the Health On the Net Foundation by clicking on the certificate located at the footer of every page of this website.
To make this site free for you to use, we accept advertisement, sponsorship, and participate in affiliate programs. However, we are strict about not letting any partnership influence our medical content. Sponsored advertisements are clearly labelled as ‘ads’ or ‘advertisement and are clearly distinguishable from our medical content.
Our Medical Review Board
