More patients are likely to choose doctor with reviews and ratings on their profile as study shows. For doctors in Cyprus, online patient feedback is still something new and challenging. However patients feedback should help to improve care and build trust and confidence.
 

At Know Your Doctor Cyprus, the patients reviews are optional, so if doctors do not want to allow patients to write a review on their profile they can simply disable the 'reviews option'. However we strongly advise to keep this option available and encourage your patients to add online reviews on your profile. KYD Technical Support Team monitors all reviews before they are published on the site therefore we will never allow any reviews that may abuse doctor's reputation.
