Edited to add:
What are the top 10 sites? I mean if the search result doesn’t come up with something by Mayo and/or CDC on a given topic, what are the other sites to go to? And is this one of them?

Absolutely NOT. It is a satire/humor website. It is NOT a health website by any stretch of the imaginations.

Written by and for medical personnel to blow off steam.

From their page:
Working in medicine is stressful! Sometimes it just flat out blows being a Healthcare Professional. Mental health issues and burnout are RAMPANT in healthcare professionals and we are here to help!!

GomerBlog.com is a satirical medical news website created by a bunch of wannabe stand up comedians who ended up in healthcare. What started as a joke now sees 2–3 million pageviews a month from all different Healthcare Professionals like yourself!

Hopefully we can help get you through your day, even if we only make you laugh a few minutes before changing room 312’s bedpan, or admitting that obnoxious drunk at 2:13am.

We make every attempt to roast all medical specialties equally, so you shouldn’t feel insulted if we hit your specialty up. In fact, it may be our super quirky way of showing our love and appreciation for what you do.

It’s a joke, but as a medical professional, it’s often hilarious.

It is funny! Dr. Accused of fat shaming patients.

@elbanditoroso Thanks. Very importnt info. How did you find the quote, which page is it in (by clicking what do you get to the page) Does the homepage indicate that it’s a satirical site?

The quote in your post is here (Google search your quote) @elbanditoroso. There is no “About Us” in the home page. Edited.

…By the way my last post is also as an aside.
