WebMD is an American corporation that provides health information services to consumers and healthcare professionals. The company was founded in 1996 and is headquartered in New York City.

WebMD’s website provides information on a wide range of health topics, including symptoms, conditions, medications, and treatments. The website also features a symptom checker, a drug interaction checker, and a directory of healthcare providers.

In addition to its consumer-facing website, WebMD also provides online health information and services to healthcare professionals through its Medscape platform. Medscape offers news, clinical reference tools, continuing medical education courses, and other resources for physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these WebMD statistics come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
