Information from this next link should be used as part of an overall assessment of a doctor and not an absolute fact. What you experience may be totally different from what others have experienced. Bear in mind that people going to doctors are not at their usual physical and emotional best, which is why they are seeking medical attention. The comments made by people in these situations may not be entirely unbiased or rational. Do not assume that some negative comments mean that he/she is a poor doctor. Doctors are human and have good and bad days like everyone else, so please bear that in mind when you see your doctor. If you decide to post a rating, be fair and as unbiased as you can. Ultimately, your experience will be accurate for you and you alone.
Look up local doctors.
