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.

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