Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

5 Scopus citations


Patients commonly use online reviews in selecting a new physician. There have been no studies of online reviews of headache medicine physicians. To better understand headache medicine physicians’ attitudes and opinions about negative reviews, 2 negative patient reviews were posted to the Southern Headache Society online discussion group and comments were requested. Twenty-two anonymous comments are provided. The strengths and inadequacies of online physician reviews in other specialties and the possible actions headache medicine physicians should take for negative reviews are discussed. A nationwide survey of online reviews of headache medicine specialists would be of interest.
