Medical Justice founder tries to bring quality to on line physician rating web sites

According to this CMAJ piece he’s not trying to shut down sites like Rate MDs. He does want to increase public pressure to make these sites accurate and reliable.

He freely admits he’s swimming against a tide. "Our challenge is based on the premise that Internet ratings are here to stay — let’s do it right," he says. "What we’ve seen looks more like the wild wild West, Jerry Springer and The National Enquirer than a serious enterprise. We’re trying to provoke a discussion and get it done better."
