When I started DrScore.com, many people told me that doctors would hate online physician ratings. I tried to explain how it would help doctors. Some people probably thought I was naïve, and others that I was crazy.
Many doctors have now seen the value in the ease with which Internet rating of doctors can help the doctor get feedback from patients. Dermatology Times, a news magazine for dermatologists, leads this month with an article on online doctor ratings (http://digital.modernmedicine.com/nxtbooks/advanstar/dermatologytimes_201003/#/0).
Take a minute to read the article, and you’ll see that doctors aren’t entirely against the idea of online doctor rating. Some are downright strongly for it!
