IRVINE, Calif., July 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- When Doctor Adam Dorin finished listening to all of the mounting concerns from patients, colleagues and political observers about America's healthcare woes, he could only conclude there was a growing deficit of valuable information and 'voice' available to medical consumers in America. That's when he created the non-profit vehicle, www.MedReviews.org, to give patients real-time access to "real patient impressions" about medical treatment facilities (and more, soon, they promise!).
"We constructed a long-term project, starting with the rating of all American hospitals, and expanding soon to the rating of ambulatory surgery centers, doctors/dentists, medical products, pharmaceuticals, healthcare legislation, medical schools, medical societies, state medical/dental boards, and then some," says Dorin. "We have many treats in store for our visitors in the months to come--we're expanding and growing daily," he adds.
The staff of MedReviews.org cringe at the term 'Medical Yelp', being thrown their way. Says Managing VP, Sam Segal, "Look, we appreciate the flattering comparison, but our mission is very serious about assisting and educating the hundreds of millions of U.S. healthcare consumers--they need patient satisfaction data not from the government or some health plan, but directly from other medical consumers. And we will provide that data, step by step, as we grow to meet their needs!"
Patients can click on RateYourMed.com or MedReviews.org to start rating their experiences. The site can be accessed from any mobile device, which provides a compass to locate institutions within a user-set radius of their location.
MedReviews.org is a division of the 501c3 nonprofit, America's Medical Society, Inc., committed to the education of all American healthcare consumers about medical quality, patient satisfaction, and real-time U.S. health statistics.
