Should you believe the physician rating sites? I am very skeptical of them. I urge you to question the sites, also.
Consider the patients who come to a physician with a personal agenda:
- wanting a prescription for an inappropriate medication (benzodiazepine, opioid, etc),
- wanting a form filled out (like a patient who has uncontrolled seizures who wants their DMV form signed), or
- one who is upset about the physician’s bedside manner.
