MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

There is a lot of dishonesty and deceit in the "rate your Dr " area and on the message boards. Please take the time to read this as it is very important.

This is a great group, and the women have helped and encouraged me a lot, thru good and bad times. I am so happy for all the wonderful ladies I have met thru MMH, and love seeing all your great results, and feeling your happiness and excitement of having a great outcome.

As of today, I have opened a new account, so this is my very first post.

I have learned many helpful things from being a member here for 2 years. One of them is DO NOT believe all the ratings/comments on the rating message boards. While the majority are true, a select few are very false, especially the ones with rave reviews for the surgeons..
When I first signed up, I believed that the ratings I read were sincere, made by honest people trying to help. I have since learned that select surgeons and their staff post before and after photos, write false ratings and comments, and go as far as to CLAIM TO BE FORMER SATISFIED PATIENTS, participating in the chat rooms, and going as far as posting before/ after photos.

TRICKS DISHONEST PRACTICES USE
If you are on the page that allows you to rate your Dr , click on the persons username by the posted review/comment area, you will see that the user has JUST JOINED MMH, and has NO previous posts, but has simply joined to PROMOTE HIS/HER PRACTICE. Dr's and their staff do this by PRETENDING TO BE A PATIENT WITH GREAT RESULTS. Such Dr's posing as patients may post photos, give facts about their experiences as "the patient" and seem very legitimate, informed and sincere.

Dr's who do these things and have their staff do things like this on their behalf are probably Dr.'s that should be avoided.

I know so many real patients have lots of questions about procedures, and go to this board for advice. There are wonderful surgeons and patients who do post on MMH. Please be selective as a patient and be very careful who you choose to perform your surgery. And remember, if you do have a bad outcome, definitely contact the professional boards that monitor the Dr.'s.

This post is not directed at any specific Dr, facility, or staff member. It is a general post directed at the plastic surgery industry, Internet advertising and is not referencing any specific Dr or facility ; )

If you feel the slightest bit of doubt about your Dr, follow your instincts. Good luck on your surgery, and if you have any questions on finding a South Florida surgeon, I have many references from real women that attend PTA and church with me, that have had wonderful experiences. Feel free to contact me if I can help you with your selection.
