We are a for-profit consumer advocacy website headquartered in Orlando, Florida and sponsored by The Peterson
Firm in Washington, D.C. The site was founded in 2009 and provides information about the severe or life-threatening
risks of certain pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices and procedures. In addition, we provide in-depth,
investigative features on industry topics that affect consumers.
As a HONCode (Health On the Net Foundation) certified site, we provide high-quality health information from
trustworthy sources, and there is never a charge for any of the information we provide.
Although The Peterson Firm sponsors us, the site operates independently of the firm. Our professional staff
includes award-winning journalists, experienced researchers and designers who are passionate about making
a difference and helping people understand the medications and medical devices they use every day.
