People who post only once to rate a doctor.

Just a question that has been bothering me. People who post once, and don't include pictures how do we know its not due to self-rating.  Because it is well know that allot of surgeons that are reputable do this. unforchantly there is nothing anyone can do about this to stop it from happening.  How ever it is not o.k. just to blast someone because you think they are fake. This is the reason it is impotent to not only rate your doctor, come apart of the community. So you as a user have more of a reputable view for the people looking in.  *rant over*   What do you think? I know this might not be the correct place to post this but i didn't know where else to post it at.

Hi there,

A valid concern, but I can tell you that we are very careful about what reviews we publish and have ways to confirm if reviews have come from doctors offices or not. This is not to say that the occasional review won't sneak through, but each review is evaluated by a real live person who does as much detective work as he or she can.

Of course, our preference is that everyone become engaged on RealSelf! But not everyone has the inclination to do that. Folks will sometimes come on and post a review because they believe strongly in their doctor but have no desire to connect with other RealSelf users.

Hope this helps!
