TOP neurologists in Germany


How do you select the right neurology doctor?

One of the most significant drawbacks in medicine is evaluating the performance of individual physicians. Therefore, health information systems launch sites for evaluating doctors of various specialities. However, star ratings do not definitively tell whether one doctor is better at treating certain conditions than another.

The trend in assessment is to use information about patient "outcomes", such as how patients rate specific aspects of their treatment experience, timeliness of care, and overall mortality rates, to bring greater clarity to the physician's work.

Patients increasingly turn to commercial doctor-rating websites like restaurants and hotels when looking for a new doctor. Still, it rarely has information that helps patients, the researchers say. Most doctors usually have only a few reviews on the site, and thoughts often don't give a complete picture of qualifications, personality, or patient experience.

In the past, word of mouth spread. Based on the study published in JAMA, about 60 per cent of consumers who search online for doctors find reviews necessary.
