Question of the Week
by liz on June 30, 2011
Our discussion boards are in the early stages of becoming a lively place for conversation among patients, doctors, and anyone who has opinions or questions about finding a great health care provider. If you have any thoughts you?d like to share with the DocSpot community, this is the place to go.
Just to add to the excitement, we?re starting a tradition of posting a new Question of the Week once every...you guessed it...week! This week?s question is ?When you?re looking for a doctor, how important are patient reviews??
At DocSpot, we aggregate as many reviews as possible (this opthalmologist, for example, has 21), in order to offer patient reviews and ratings as one of many factors that people can choose to consider as they search for health providers at www.DocSpot.com. Some people won't make a decision without looking at reviews; others tend to be skeptical of online reviews or just want to form their own opinions about a doctor regardless of what other people think. Where do you fall in this spectrum? We?d love to hear your thoughts via the discussion board.
If you don?t have any particular opinions about patient reviews, that?s fine too - check back often for new questions to ponder, responses to chew on, and opportunities to share what you think.
