Dermatology Times via Modern Medicine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Dr. Reputation has successfully practiced dermatology in a small Midwestern town for almost 10 years. For the first five years of his practice, his schedule was almost always full, and for the following two years, he always had a waiting list of appointments. Two years ago, Dr. Reputation started noticing a slowdown in his practice, which he attributed to the poor national economy. After all, his peers had reported a similar slowdown in their schedules. Recently, however, other dermatologists have reported an upturn in both their medical and cosmetic appointment schedules, yet Dr. Reputation now has days when his schedule is only half-full. He is discouraged by this, and wonders what the reason is for this ongoing slump in patients. One day, a loyal patient tells Dr. Reputation that while he greatly respects the dermatologist, others do not agree. The patient explains that a popular physician grading website gives Dr. Reputation a failing grade, whereas the other four dermatologists in the area are graded as being excellent. Dr. Reputation is furious and contacts the website and demands to know the method by which physicians are graded. He is told that this method is proprietary and will not be revealed to him. Despite threatening a lawsuit, he receives no information. Can Dr. Reputation sue to find out the methods used by the "physician evaluation" website? More
