Dr. Oogle is a SCAM.  They are  a dishonest organization and use strong arm techniques to get advertising dollars. They are misleading the public.First let me state that I am a dental professional who takes great pride in the care of my patients.  Several years ago I noticed that I was receiving excellent reviews from patients on a web site known as Dr.oogle.com .    I thought this was great as I knew that I was providing excellent patient care and why not let the world know it.   Well the positive reviews started pouring in and after several months had I had 6 glowing reports from my patients on their web site.The email response then attempted to extort money from me declaring that if I did not pay up they would remove my listing.   I said that was fine as I felt my practice did not actually need their recommendation as I had plenty of great reviews on Yelp....(which is  a great legitimate site).It gets worse, instead of simply unlisting me, they listed me as expired leading people to believe that I no longer practiced.  
Even worse, they removed all 6 favorable 5 star reviews and posted a single 3 star review from an anonymous source, with no actual review..just a 3 star listing.So the bottom line is that because I refused to pay them any money they decided to slander my online reputation in a very sneaky fashion.   The Doctors that are listed are paying money to keep Dr. Oogle at bay.

I encourage anyone with any similar negative experiences with Dr. Oogle to post them on a blog or for free on Weebly.

Suggestion for Dentist in Massachusetts

AUTHOR: Tx30 - (United States of America)

If you are a member of Dental Town (Townie Central), you should write about your bad Dr. Oogle experience there.  There are many dentists that read those message boards and you will be doing justice by warning other dentists about Dr. Oogle's blackmailing scams.  I too am a victim and will be posting on Dental Town.

original report needed correcting

AUTHOR: Dr.dentist - (United States of America)

I had copy and pasted the original report from a document I had written and it got a bit jumbled. I was so excited about  finding "rip off report"  that I did not edit carefully enough. I have made the necessary corrections below.   I  read the rebuttal from Dr. Oogle and since they have shown that they are untrustworthy, I have no intention of contacting them as who knows what they would do to my online reputation.   They slandered me online, I have told the public what they really are about..and I am going to move on!    My message to the general public....The best way to find a great dentist is word of mouth from friends, and unbiased web sites like Yelp and Angie's list that do not solicit a charge to keep great reviews up.

Dr. Oogle is a SCAM.  They are  a dishonest organization and use strong arm techniques to get advertising dollars. They are misleading the public!!!


First let me state that I am a dental professional who takes great pride in the care of my patients.  Several years ago I noticed that I was receiving excellent reviews from patients on a web site known as Dr.oogle.com .    I thought this was great as I knew that I was providing excellent patient care and why not let the world know it.   Well the positive reviews started pouring in and after several months had I had 6 glowing reports from my patients on their web site.


Then I got a fateful threatening email from the mafiosa personel at the supposedly unbiased Dr. Oogle.   It stated that I was getting such great reviews that they could no longer post me on Dr. OOgle unless I agreed to paying them a monthly sum of 50 dollars.  I thanked them but told them I was not interested in paying for advertisement with them.

The email response then attempted to extort money from me declaring that if I did not pay up they would remove my listing.   I said that was fine as I felt my practice did not actually need their recommendation as I had plenty of great reviews on Yelp....(which is  a great legitimate site).

It gets worse, instead of simply unlisting me, they listed me as expired leading people to believe that I no longer practiced.  
Even worse, they removed all 6 favorable 5 star reviews and posted a single 3 star review from an anonymous source, with no actual review..just a 3 star listing.


So the bottom line is that because I refused to pay them any money they decided to slander my online reputation in a very sneaky fashion.   The Doctors that are listed are paying money to keep Dr. Oogle at bay.


Yelp is a far more accurate assesment of your doctors ability.  It is unbiased, they screen their reviewers to ensure that they are real people, and while they would  like advertising dollars, they do not threaten with removal of all positive reviews.
