Dr Farah Meher-Homji - an example of the power of ratemds?

I was very displeased with a liposuction procedure done by Dr Farah Meher-Homji at a time when she worked as a "cosmetic physician" for the Cosmos Clinic in Australia. Like other ex-patients, I posted my review on ratemds signalling my dissatisfaction. Over time I saw multiple negative reviews appear, highlighting experiences not dissimilar to my own. Sadly many negative reviews disappeared even though they looked genuine - but a number remained. The many negative reviews were no surprise to me after my experience, and along the way I have had been able to find and communicate with other unhappy Cosmos Clinic liposuction ex-patients which has provided me an important channel of sharing experiences and feeling like I was not alone. Anyway, it now appears that Dr Farah Meher-Homji has left the Cosmos Clinic and gone back to her work as a General Practitioner. I'm sure there were more factors than just ratemds that prompted this move by Dr Meher-Homji, but it is my opinion this shows the importance of patients being brave enough to place an honest review on sites like ratemds. It can be powerful, and can lead to better outcomes such as doctors exiting fields that perhaps they do not have the required attributes to perform to a high level. I congratulate ratemds on its work, and urge that the site be kept honest and take negative reviews seriously. Thankyou.

There is power in not

There is power in not remaining silent.

But one can feel powerless when they are not heard, and therefore, deleting negative reviews can be harmful.

And yet, there are good doctors who have good reviews deleted and they must feel powerless too.

I wish there was a better way.

Doctors will make mistakes, just like any other human being, and need to learn from their mistakes.

We need to find a better way. There needs to be justice.

But, in the meantime, I am grateful to have RateMDs.

Sometimes, it's the only justice patients can get. But, it's unfair to some doctors - but, lol - "So What?" Evil

Our health and well-being - doctors and patients - should NEVER be a matter of "So What?"

We all matter.
