How to beat RateMDs


One doc's got a novel strategy to , reports Pharm Aid. Dr Jeffrey Segal (pictured right), founder of , refuses to treat patients unless they promise not to discuss their care.

Patients are required to sign contracts saying that they will not say anything about the physician or the treatment they receive. In exchange for which, the doctor will actually treat the patient. There’s an interesting twist in the contract in which, if the patient signs, the doctor also agrees to abide by HIPAA regulations and not sell the patient’s personal medication information to marketers. (Segal “sells” this to patients by claiming he’s “giving” the patients additional privacy protection above the law.)

If a patient signs the contract and says anything about their care to anyone, the wealthy physician can go after the patient for damages. If the patient does not sign, the physician denies medical care. Simple as that.

    I created the site www.iratemds.com based on Star Trek doctors. Dr. McCoy often gets irate with Spock and he gets a bad rating. Dr. McCoy is also rated on ratemds.com!
