General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

It helped me within 24 hours. In less than a month, I had no pain. It has been a year with no pain. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. I saw a doctor at Kerlan and Jobe, the So. CA orthopedic clinic that does all the professional athletes. I figured that they wouldn't use crappy doctors for multi-million dollar athletes.
