When I went to Healthgrades.com to write a negative review of two others one who was their a nurse from 2019-2020 and one who was a doctor from summer 2000-August 01, 2017 working for years making bully jokes of me and my family. Let me say one thing. Healthgrades is the most laziest company I’ve ever complained towards. I’ve wrote a complaint of the nurse and the doctor who was there. What I’ve said was the truth and they didn’t believe it. I’m human so is everyone else. Everyone counts. I was treated this way because of my mental illness. I’m human and I can function like anyone else.
These professionals what they’ve done was abuse and I can’t stand but, watch them do it to someone else. Is this what Healthgrades wants? I guess so. I wrote was the truth and I was shut down because of my mentality they thought of a lie I said. I don’t recommend Healthgrades or another feedback to them never again. I want others to know. AVOID THIS COMPANY!!!! THIS IS WRONG AND UNFAIR TOWARDS PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TOO SAY THE TRUTH!!!! AVOID!!!!
I wouldn't recommend HealthGrades to anyone. I left an HONEST, TRUTHFUL review of a very terrible doctor and they refused to post it. It did not meet their liberal values and doesn't align with their kickbacks from the doctors. HealthGrades manipulates their review system which is bias and untrustworthy.

I had numerous negative experiences with a physician and wrote a review regarding his actions. Healthgrades apparently won't publish negative reviews. They apparently censored my review stating it went against their guidelines. I was only stating the truth.
Healthgrades.com removes real people's reviews to protect bad doctors! Reviews will magically disappear or re-appear and ratings will change on the fly mostly to favor doctors at the cost of patients, always at the cost of patients. That should tell you a lot about the reliability of Heathgrades.com's ratings and reviews.
This company has no phone number to actually talk to someone. An account was made without my knowledge and/or authorization. I had several clients who claim they put reviews and did not show up. Does not appear to be a legitimate company.
Doctors now work in corporate entities, part of large medical organizations. They are expected to handle their patient visits quickly and efficiently. On the surface, Those are worthwhile goals. However, it results in greater pressure on the doctors. Healthgrades only adds to that pressure. The medical corporation uses those grades to pressure doctors. How much pressure depends on the ethical behavior of the corporation. Who puts pressure on Healthgrades? Who monitors them? In general, I believe in oversight but it has to be enlightened and not just profit oriented. I was going to say as much to Healthgrades but they don't provide any contacts.
I have seen many similar reviews as mine. I have posted mostly positive reviews of doctors. One negative one and they won't publish it. It was a completely accurate description of my experience. I am aware that the doctor himself/herself may not be so bad, but who is responsible for how the office is run? If the staff are unorganized, rude, miserable, unaccommodating, unsympathetic, doesn't that represent the entire practice? This site cannot be trusted. They were probably threatened with a lawsuit from a few doctors and now the truth can no longer be posted.
I was not even aware the site existed until a customer brought it up. This company collects your information and puts it out there to be judged by anyone anonymously. The Healthcare professional has no defense except to send out some generic response to whomever may or may not read it. Bad part is.. the damage is done. How do we know we ever treated this person or met them? The only person allowed the privilege of slandering another person is the reviewer. Very biased platform, unprofessional, and damaging to healthcare professional. And the site is to help people make informed decisions about provider? And guess what.. you have no control over them putting you on their site. I am not happy with this. I did call Healthgrades. Their response was, "‘Too bad’ we have this right". I want my name off their site. I’m considering slander under pretense of ‘helping’ who?
I am a physician who has received false negative reviews by people who have never been a patient of mine and despite notifying Healthgrades and offering proof, they refuse to remove them. Allowing fake reviews undermined their credibility and harms my reputation.
I write almost exclusively positive reviews. Excellence should be recognized. These get published and I am glad for these practitioners. That said, no righteously negative and equally informative review will ever see the light of day on Healthgrades. Just pandering to docs. Clearly I am not alone in this opinion. Maybe a not so bumpkin poor review will get at least to the doctor. Nobody performs well all the time. Sometimes fundamental policies need correcting. I will continue to participate in this service for the good docs. Guess the bad ones will just get away with it when it comes to Healthgrades. Just can't resist. To the so sensitive Doc. who accused us of being a bunch of dolts wielding a computer with a bad attitude in craven secret; get a handle on your hubris.
