Remove online reviews of doctors!

Doctors and other healthcare providers are reviewed on online review sites, similar to other businesses.  We, however, are not like those other businesses.  These online reviews are an open forum to the public written by patients, who are allowed to share their stories and photos explaining their experiences that they had with their doctor.  Often these reviews are negative and accuse the doctors of complications or mismanagement from medical visits, treatments and procedures that they have had.  Unlike other businesses, we, the doctors, are not allowed to respond, to defend our case or share any facts or photos to the public because of HIPAA and medical privacy laws.  We, the doctors, find this extremely unfair and unjust.  If patients are allowed to review us, then we should be able to defend the review and be able to state publicly our side of the story.   This is a clear cut prohibition and violation of our rights to defend ourselves and to protect our names and reputations. These reviews that are often one sided, impact our livelihood and medical practices. They also cause emotional distress to the doctors, who cannot explain their side of the story that is out in the public forum for others to read and believe.   Also, many doctors fearing poor reviews will overprescribe and overtest just to "satisfy" patients.  We, the doctors, should not be pressured to do things to get good reviews.  We want to provide medical care not customer care.  This affs the care to our patients and society as a whole.   We ask for immediate withdrawal of ALL doctors and providers, who are affected by HIPAA and medical privacy laws, from being reviewed on these online review sites. Until we can defend ourselves, a review should not be posted to which we cannot respond.

Yelp.com should remove politically motivated reviews on Scott Van Duzer's Big Apple Pizza Yelp Page

Just because an American small business owner [Scott Van Duzer] got excited to see President Barack Obama walk into his place of business and decided to hug him is NO reason why anyone should give him bad reviews on Yelp.com or any website. We do not need to place politics everywhere. The man was excited as any true American would be to meet the POTUS; that's it, he didn't do anything wrong - no reason to hate on his business for that. I hope Yelp see's the issue and removes all the politically motivated posts. His Yelp page: http://www.yelp.com/biz/big-apple-pizza-fort-pierce Will be posting updates on: http://www.facebook.com/jennypodushko - as I get them!

Yelp create a "historic" tag to support legacy businesses

If you are looking for something on Yelp, you can search by what's "hot & new", valet parking, price-range, whether or not they accept Bitcoin & proximity to PokeStops. But you can't search for businesses that have been in the neighborhoods for generations.  So here's an idea: what if Yelp made a "historic" tag so we could find businesses that have been around for 20+ years & support their legacy?  UPDATE: I tweeted this idea to Yelp & they are into it! But I think they will implement it much more quickly if we can show how many Yelp users would value this feature.  Please sign & share this petition so they know how many people would like to make an effort to patronize local, historic & multi-generational small businesses.
