Physician Rating Websites: An interesting article in Family Practice Management (the publication of the American Academy of Family Physicians) on how doctors should handle website reviews, particularly bad ones.  Not a whole lot of new info, but confirms that it's tough to deal with bad reviews.  Whatever you do, don't use or disclose PHI in responding to a bad review: just because the patient posts his/her own PHI (even if they lie in doing so), that doesn't give the provider the right to use or disclose the PHI further.
