Yeah, i think Yelp is far away better then then the other sites for getting the truth out. It's far from perfect but they don't remove negative reviews like most of the other review sites.

A doctor I can't mention is now recently out of business and that had allot to do with Yelp. https://www.yelp.com/biz...yelid-center-los-angeles

I still can't get over how they determine who their "top docs" are, the ones who answer the most questions. If they have the time to answer questions and tweet all day long then I doubt they are very busy. Give me a break!!

And the one's who pay!! There's some "top Docs" with 3 stars!!!!

Make me heal is the same way. Part of their Top Doctor package is the complete removal of any negative reviews on their site. Guaranteed 5 stars. My doc did it and the next day my review and any others less then complimentary were taken off.

You'd think they'd leave one or two bad reviews in just to make it a tad believable though. You'd have to be the most naive of the naive to believe those reviews.

Somewhat related to this topic (and it may have been posted here before). I see Guyuron took legal action against patients who left bad reviews on a few sites like Realself and RateMds.

This is why people don't disclose their docs in public forums, right? Plastic surgeons want people to review them except when their work is objectively terrible. I've got a ridiculously long realself review I've wanted to link to my op doc, but instead had to use it as a threat when he demanded I give him my insurance reimbursement that totaled above his surgical quote. He's gone quiet after I repeatedly unloaded on him in email. Screw size and implant size were completely under his control, and he admitted both were bad decisions in email and in post op visits... too bad the bar for malpractice in plastic surgery is so high.

BTW I see in that link that Guyron was also sueing for damages from that defendant's Yelp review.

sometimes its the other way around and they are dealing with unreasonable or malicious patients and need to defend themselves if they feel it untrue. i support that.

yes we have talked about that G case.
