Finding reviews online is easier than ever these days. With over 40 platforms on the Internet, patients can easily enter their doc’s name into a Google search and find all the information they need at their fingertips. Healthgrades, RateMDs.com, and Vitals are widely utilized by nationwide patients looking for other patient reviews they can trust.
At Arizona Priority Care, our patients are our priority. We value their comfort and trust, using these characteristics to identify the root cause of their health concerns. Providing patients with additional health services gives us the reputable status we have, which includes our state-of-the-art Gilbert Urgent Care Center, Senior’s Advantage Club, and unmatched patient care. With over 100 physicians in our network, Arizona Priority Care is the best primary care physician group in the entire southwest United States.
It is not only patients who benefit from online reviews, but physicians as well. The Journal of the American Medical Association published a study from the University of Michigan stating that 25 percent of 2,000 surveyed adults use physician-rating sites to choose a physician. Seeing how prominent these features are to patient experiences, physicians are starting to understand how they can benefit from these resources. Physicians should:
- Encourage their patients to comment about their experience
- Monitor their ratings on physician-review sites
- Engage with patients by responding to negative (and sometimes positive) comments
At Arizona Priority Care, we encourage our patients to share their experiences online to give people in surrounding areas a resource for their health concerns. If you have a great experience or wish to speak with any of our staff about how we can improve our care, we ask that you speak with anyone at Arizona Priority Care! We love to hear from our patients and hope we can address any issues so that their next experience is wonderful!
