Many Younger Parents Weigh Online Doctor Reviews: Poll
Date:2/20/2013

nger than 30 years old think these online ratings sites are important, compared to 21 percent of parents 30 or older.

"These data suggest that younger families are more likely to rely on online ratings, which means over time we'd expect the use of these websites will keep increasing," said Hanauer.

Although more parents are evaluating online doctor reviews, just 5 percent of adults said they have posted a doctor rating or review.

"The small percentage of people who actually post reviews suggests that people who depend on online ratings may not be getting an accurate picture of a pediatrician's care," noted Hanauer.

Poll director Dr. Matthew Davis said there is not enough evidence to assess whether parents can trust the doctor ratings and reviews they find online.

"There is currently no oversight or regulation for rating websites that collect 'crowd-sourced' information about doctors," he said. "It is hard to verify the reliability of the ratings or whether they are subject to manipulation."
