Physician Practice Perspectives

Websites that provide patient ratings of physicians and hospitals are often criticized for not providing enough clinical information on physicians, but a recent study and blog post suggest the “Yelp” approach to healthcare provider ratings is an effective tool that provides information of interest to consumers.
