How can Aesthetic Reviews guarantee that patients will give good reviews, how many users do you have signed up? How do users find your site to use it?
It would appear you have confused what we do with what some other sites may do. We are not a ratings and reviews site. Instead, we have set up partnerships with many of the ratings and review sites. In doing so, along with using our patented technology platform, we are able to publish fully verified reviews from your satisfied patients. Our services are the only ones that are FCC compliant, state board compliant, review site compliant, and HIPAA compliant.
While there is a significant amount of technology and patented software behind our program, it is a service at heart. I say that, because it ultimately helps overcome a satisfied patient’s inherent lack of motivation. That’s truly why happy patients don’t go online and provide reviews nearly as often as unhappy patients. By providing those happy patients with a service that is extraordinarily easy to use by making it possible to post reviews in a matter of minutes, we overcome their inherent lack of motivation.
What’s more, we have designed this patented platform so that we are truly publishing verified patient reviews. Many aesthetic physicians don’t fully understand why verified reviews are so important. In fact, a recent New York Times article showed how people could buy a fake review for five dollars. In our industry itself, a large reputation management company was caught publishing reviews on behalf of its physicians. We believe that the physicians involved did not know that what this company was doing was wrong. However, the review sites caught on to the reputation management company’s bogus practices, and the physicians have since been exposed and shamed for their deceitful tactics. These bad reputation marks will forever be associated with these physicians (their name and practice) on the Internet. A few days ago The Center for Democracy and Technology filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission against this reputation management company, and they are now under federal investigation.
With so many other services out there claiming to help get satisfied patients online, it is extremely important that you chose a provider that will help ensure that the reviews placed online about your practice are verified and legitimate. Not only are you maintaining compliance, but you avoid being shamed and banned by the reviews websites; cited by the FTC, scrutinized by your medical board, and losing a good reputation you have worked years to build.
Aesthetic Reviews isn’t focused on promoting our “own website”; instead, we focus on getting verified, legitimate reviews of your practice in places where potential patients will see them. These places include Google, CitySearch, Rate MDs, Vitals, Health Grades, and Make Me Heal. By focusing on these rating and reviews sites, we are ensuring that your reputation will improve across the board, which should essentially impact and improve your search engine rankings.
