5-Star Reviews Drive Prospects to Vascular Surgeon; How Effective is Your System for Capturing and Promoting Good Physician Reviews?
When Dr. Tif Siragusa asks new patients why they chose him they say, “Because you had good reviews.” Siragusa’s reviews on Healthgrades and Vitals have more than doubled in less than two years since he began using a reputation management service developed by Boston-based MDConnect.
The service, ReviewMD, is built around a dedicated review website, drtifsiragusa.com. Patients can post reviews there, and then click prominent buttons to add their reviews to Healthgrades and Vitals as well as LinkedIn, Google and Facebook.
“I thought it was a great concept because it’s not only an independent place where patients can review you, but it also prompts them to review you on other review sites,” says Siragusa.
Online physician reviews have a significant impact on prospective patients. A 2012 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that 59 percent of respondents reported doctor rating sites to be “somewhat important” or “very important” when choosing a physician.
