    Have you ever posted a negative experience with a doctor on Yelp, or your own Facebook page, or that doctor's FB page?

    I have had a few poor experiences and I don't mind posting the good, bad, and ugly on my own FB page, but that doesn't carry much weight. I was going to post a negative post on Yelp, then I thought no. But how is a doctor any different than the corner butcher shop? If they dropped a steak on the floor and then picked it up and wrapped it for you would you post about that? So if a doctor does something that is just as bad they deserve to suffer the bad press don't they? What do you think?

      I have never done this but have read reviews on providers. I have to say I found it helpful when comparing reviews. If someone had several good reviews and one bad, I didn’t automatically dismiss them, but if there were a number of bad reviews I moved on.

      I remember recently reading about a patient that posted a negative review about a doctor, then the doctor filed a lawsuit for defamation against the patient. I don't remember if it was local or away from my area. That shows you that if you have enough money you can control the conversation.
