While I did realize that there are all sorts of ratings and reviews available online, I hadn’t considered that this would extend to physicians.
I appreciate the ability to learn more on any topic, but in this case, I have to wonder if there is really much value in reading through these reviews. It actually just increases the time we are spending on things that drain us. Before you spend an evening researching your doctor’s reviews, you might consider reading this article on shadow work.
Thanks for this useful information …

The rating system presently used definitely needs a revision. Making it better and serving the purpose more precisely.
