starsWhy is getting patients to write reviews so challenging?

Truly authentic patient reviews for your Google My Business page and other sites like Yelp or Citysearch are hard to get, and even harder to keep.

Google’s recent changes prevent users from writing reviews anonymously, which is great for many businesses, but not so much for healthcare.

Why do patients respond so well to RealPatientRatings™?

The anonymity that RPR gives patients makes them feel comfortable sharing their true feelings and experiences. Our online survey only goes out to actual patients, and is sent within a consistent time frame following both surgery and consultation appointments, resulting in frequent new content for your website (and Google loves it!)

RealPatientRatings™ has surveyed nearly 4100 patients and generated over 2500 plastic surgery patient reviews with an average rating of 4.5 or higher for our members.
