Just what the doctor ORDERED! - March 9, 2009, 10:46 AM

I know I know...another non-bike related thread. But I found this story so bizzare, as well as a huge eye opener as to the state of the medical profession, I thought we should kick this around a bit because it really does affect everybody in one way or another...

From the Associated press:
CHICAGO – The anonymous comment on the Web site RateMDs.com was unsparing: "Very unhelpful, arrogant," it said of a doctor. "Did not listen and cut me off, seemed much too happy to have power (and abuse it!) over suffering people." Such reviews are becoming more common as consumer ratings services like Zagat's and Angie's List expand beyond restaurants and plumbers to medical care, and some doctors are fighting back.

They're asking patients to agree to what amounts to a gag order that bars them from posting negative comments online……

If you want to read more click on the link below. This story is being posted all over the internet on just about every news site, so I linked to one that had the least amount of advertising

Interesting, dont see how they can legally gag someone like that, and defamation litigation is tough unless outright lies can be proven.

Totally against doctors gagging their patients, every other industry online has reviews, ebay sellers, auto mechanics, even freakin escorts, why can't doctors deal. If they get a bad review, they should simply be able to offer a rebuttal if it bothers them so much, otherwise, work on your game like everyone else has to.
