FAQs
1. How do I know that my doctor will not find out what I said about him or her?

DrScore allows patients to remain completely anonymous when they rate their doctor, so they can be completely honest.

2. Why can't I rate my doctor more than once per quarter?

Patients are limited to rating each doctor only once per quarter to prevent anyone from "stuffing the ballot box" and skewing the ratings by repeatedly rating a doctor over and over again in a short time period.

3. What do I do if my doctor is not on the list?

DrScore uses a national database of licensed physicians that is updated at intervals. If for some reason your doctor is not on the list, please use our Missing Physician form to let us know. We will contact that state medical board to verify the information and add your doctor upon verification.

4. How reliable are the ratings on DrScore?

DrScore is a site for patients, by patients. It is only as reliable as the people who use it. To assist you in evaluating the ratings about a given doctor, DrScore tells you how many patients have rated that doctor.

5. Why does DrScore have advertising?

DrScore isn't just about telling patients about doctors. It's also about educating patients to help them improve their own care. DrScore tells patients about patient advocacy groups that have terrific information about different diseases. DrScore also tells patients about treatment options they might not have otherwise known about. And in some cases, DrScore can even help patients by getting them a discount on medical products they need.

6. Will DrScore give away my name to advertisers?


No. DrScore does not collect any personal information about patients who use the site to rate their doctors. Since we don't know your name, we can't give it to anyone!

7. Does DrScore give this information to my doctor?

Anyone, doctors included, are able to go to DrScore and view the ratings of doctors, including themselves. This is part of the purpose of DrScore - to improve medical care by letting doctors see how their patients rate them. Doctors are able to purchase, for a nominal fee, the more detailed information collected by the survey. These modest fees from doctors keep the site free for patients.
