Protect Against Negative RateMDs Postings

The Internet has created many positives for businesses including doctors, dentists and MDs of all specialties like plastic surgeons, bariatric surgeons, lasik doctors and more.  It has also become a great place for consumers that purchase products and services because they can compare pricing, read reviews and rate products and services they come across.  The reality however, is not everything you read on a review or rating site like RateMds can be verified because the person making the review can remain anonymous.  What's to stop a jealous doctor or dentist from making a negative post about your practice on RateMDs?  Nothing, there are all kinds of scenarios that can occur, an angry ex-girlfriend or boyfriend, spouse, ex-employee can anonymously start an Internet smear campaign on RateMDs and the information good or bad isn't verified.  The reverse is also true, a doctor listed on a site like RateMDs can have all kinds of 5 star posts from a network of friends that have never received any treatment.  The difference though is the positive posts won't hurt you the negative posts on RateMDs will.
