One of our basic rights as United States citizens — to speak freely — is in jeopardy.

In a small, but scary trend, a growing niche of health care providers are requiring patients to sign away their rights to comment openly, anonymously, publicly and privately about the level of service they receive from physicians — good or bad.

He performed the surgery on my husband. He misdiagnosed his problem and did the valve replacement. My husband went down hill from the day of the surgery. When I was upset because my husband was getting worse Dr.

told me he is getting better and stop crying .My husband died. It wasn't until after his death that we learned of his true diagnosis. There were symptoms of that diagnosis, but they were ignored.

He is a dynamic doctor. He changed my medication and it has really helped me control my diabetes. I would recommend him highly. His staff is polite and caring. I was referred to him by a friend.

Surgery went as expected -- outpatient care at hospital facility. I was in by 6:30 AM and home by noon. Stayed off my foot for 2 weeks and walked with assistance for another week. Had bi-weekly then monthly follow-up appointments, Three months after surgery, my foot is fine, no swelling, and in another month, I should be able to run again. Really liked this doctor. Staff was warm and caring.

if you need her services. She is one of the best doctors I've ever had the pleasure to interact with. She saved my husband's life, and I can't begin to say enough good things about her.

They ran all sorts of tests on my husband-bonescans, xrays, etc. This doctor apparently did not look at these tests because the doctor didn't even know my husband had bone cancer until we told him. They gave him so many pain medications that he overdosed. I'm not saying that this doctor could have saved my husbands life but how could you not notice my husband had bone cancer after interpreting all of the test results.

He's a high risk heart surgeon and does experimental heart surgery. My father died on his operating table last year. His percentages of deaths are very high. I feel that he scares his patients into having surgery and he's horrible about explaining possible outcomes.
