I wanted to introduce a new website that I came up with up as a solution to a problem that has been bothering me for a long time: There's no website that provides people's reviews and ratings on doctors (which is funny since you can find reviews on bottle openers..).

Find a Doctor

I have just launched a beta and will be happy to hear your thoughts on the idea and the site in general.

Thanks!

I see your site has become http://www. mdjunction. com/, and it looks like it is off to a good start. Some other sites rate doctors, but sometimes these are in the insurance company sites. Note that it is of course not fair to judge a doctor just by a very small number of comments. In some states such as Massachusetts at the website of the agency that registers doctors, or at the state medical association, you can find out whether there have been disciplinary measures against a doctor, lawsuits, and what specialty boards that doctor is listed as being certified by. Occasionally a doctor will claim to be a specialist when he / she is not registered by a specialty board.[/url]

Thank you for your feedback Dan, I appreciate it.
I'm aware that some states provide disciplinary and certification information on doctors and I do plan on adding that to MDJunction in the future - I think these are important when one chooses a doctor.

Please feel free to send me more feedback through this forum or directly through MDJunction.

Thanks!

I wasnt able to post unless I replied, so Im not sure if this is the best place. But I came across these articles at http://www. medicaldebtresources. com, that address how many people are in debt. Im a little concerned because I am in school now and I want to become a doctor. Its only my first year so I have a ways to go, but if Im going to end up in debt I don't think I was that risk. What do you all think?
