Doctor Reviews and How to Use Them

103 5
There is so much content and information on the Internet, and perhaps some of the most readily useful things one can deem from it are doctor reviews.
There have been reviews on everything under the sun, mostly movies, books, entertainment and the like, but to have such information on doctors is a relatively new idea.
Just as you would read a movie review so you could avoid paying and wasting time on an awful movie, it is even more important to do so with reviewing people's opinions of doctors.
Here are some ways to delve the most useful information out of this up and coming plethora of information, so you can decide on seeing the best person for you.
First, one must know that most of these reviews, unless otherwise stated, are from the average Joe, not professional reviewers.
So, like many things written on the Internet, this information should be taken with a grain of salt.
That being said, it doesn't mean you can't trust or delve any good info from reading them, but it is best to be skeptical to an extent in order to see the truth.
Otherwise, reviews from accredited news sources, websites, or professionals are very useful, but it never hurts to supplement your readings with those opinions from regular people that use that certain physician.
Another thing to keep in mind is that it is best to read as many reviews as possible, from as many people, websites, and forums as possible.
This will give you the broadest base of information from which you can decide if you want to use this or that person.
Reading only one or two will prove to be as useless as reading none at all.
First of all, if it only says how great the guy is with no information or details on the actual service, then it is not a useful review because you can only see that one person says he is a great guy.
Conversely, you may find someone's opinion to be angry, full of personal attacks and bad reviews equally absent of any useful information.
Therefore, reading as much as you can shows a wide range of opinions, and you may find consistencies among them in both good and bad ratings.
What information are you looking for? What makes a good review? Well, one needs to discern the good info from the useless.
A good review isn't about how handsome or pretty the doctor is, nor about how fancy their car may be.
We need to find useful information.
Trust reviews describing how long the wait was to be seen, details on how the doctor's work was good or bad, how easy it was to work with that person, how comfortable he made the patient feel, and how friendly the staff was.
Also any information about the facility, cleanliness, and new or outdated technology will be useful, because those are all apart of the experience in going to an appointment.
Yes, there is a lot to divine from these reviews, but it will ultimately come around to you meeting the doctor personally.
Using reviews as a starting point will certainly get you in the right direction, and perhaps you can make your own doctor reviews to help others looking for the best.
