What our customers say about pdfFiller

See for yourself by reading reviews on the most popular resources:
Just needed access to a quick fillable PDF for SOAP notes when my office management software with builtin SOAP notes crashed. It is filling a need for the moment, doubtful I will continue. It seems like a nice program but the diagram on the SOAP notes is too cumbersome to mark with the given symbols on the chart as, so far, I have seen no way to actually mark the figure on the chart with the same symbols electronically. There are some symbols available, like the check, circle and line but they are not like the ones on the actual symbol chart. If there was a more expedient way to use those same symbols I might actually be very interested in using this.

Comprehensive, efficient and intuitive functionality. The only capability I missed was use of the arrow / scroll keys. A simplistic and refreshing technical experience. Thank you!
