"I have used the Clinician's Electronic Thesaurus for several years. As my practice has changed with the advent of managed care and the increased demands for reports, this software has helped me keep current on appropriate diagnostic terminology. It provides dynamic, clinically correct descriptions and phraseology that I can easily import into a report without it sounding 'canned,' as I have experienced with other programs. I can produce fresh, pertinent, well-written professional reports in less than half the time. I would recommend it wholeheartedly to colleagues in any related discipline, whether they are producing court reports, managed care reports, custody reports or the myriad others that are demanded of busy professionals." Nora Fleming Young, PhD, Independent Counseling Psychologist
