Doctors went from Reputation Management Became Black Mail!!

Online rating and review sites, aimed at the medical profession, are all the rage—and  become ruinous to my medical practices.

Most patients are hesitant to rebuke me, face to face. Anonymously, via an online review site, is another matter entirely I had patients to sound off on the quality of medical care they have received, cloaked in the privacy that the Internet allows, those consequences were utterly devastating.

Cliff Stein, the Chief Executive Officer for Reputation Changer (his position now is an OBM of Brand. [continued below].... promised to de-index the bad reviews that had been posted to the Internet, turning them into non-issues.

Stein, promised this new injection code would delete patients’ online reviews. Stein said the $7,500 fee to delete content was far less that seeking legal action which is seldom effective against Ripoff Report, due to the prickly nature of free-speech lawsuits, and besides, it can be very expensive and very time-consuming.

He told me longer these negative reviews are online, the more damage they can do, and the more patients will turn to other physicians.

Stein provided a list of Fortune 500 brands and even elected officials, whom have used their deletion code. The benefits he told me to think of as brand enhancement and would provide competitive edge, something that a doctor in the medical needed. What we seek to do is position these brands as desirable brands among consumers-brands of choice, in other words," says Stein.

I paid the $7,500 and waited to have the negative reviews removed. As we continued to lose patients because reports remained, I was forced to pay another $7,500 retainer, for a total of $22,500. After not having my reputation restored, I asked for a refund and was told that was unreasonable. I then disputed the charges on my credit card and were utterly savaged by bad reviews it was brutal.

Stein, is not offering to de-index our complaints if we sign a non-disparagement and pay an additional $15,000 poor reviews.

The bottom line, stay away from Cliff Stein, it is of the utmost importance if you value your reputation.
