RateMDs not posting my negative reviews

I recently submitted two legitimate negative reviews for two doctors on this site. Directly after posting the reviews they were placed under review by RateMDs. I returned a day later to see if the reviews were posted and to my dismay they were reviewed but remain unposted. It shows the date of the review, my ratings, and my insurance but does not show the summary of information I wrote about the doctors. Their was nothing inappropriate written in the reviews, I can assure you, there were even things written in the reviews that reflected other negative reviews written before me. I am profoundly upset about this as my experience with these doctors was extremely negative and I want to bring them to justice and make others aware of my experience.

Are you certain that your

Are you certain that your ratings were actually reviewed? When a user flags one for review, the commentary disappears. It sounds as though the review is still pending. You can send a Personal Message to RateMDsJohn, giving specifics. Some docs will watch their profiles virtually daily, and flag anything they don't like, hoping for removal.

It is possible, as well, that a patient will rate a doctor, having inherited an IP address of another rater of the same doctor. This can occur when ISPs issue addresses to pools of users in a small community served by a few doctors. Investigation of other identifying information given by a computer can, however, differentiate the submissions. I would give it a few days to see if the ratings are resurrected before getting too alarmed.

One of the ratings was posed

One of the ratings was posed on 11/20/13 for Dr. Charles Spatz, a podiatrist in New Jersey, check it out and tell me what you think is going on. I have been reviewing on this site for over 2 years and never experienced this problem when leaving negative reviews.

Simply put, RateMDs is a phoney review site. Mic is grasping at straws to avoid seeing the truth.

Having been here a short while, you are guessing, at best, how things on the site function. I don't have to guess, nor am I restricted by observation to understand how the nuts and bolts work. You could at least serve yourself by first becoming educated on matters here, avoiding an embarrassing display of ignorance.

Some user has clicked on the flag and sent the rating for a review. Given that it's the only non-5.0 in the lot, it's probably the rated doctor or one of his employees/staff/favourite patients. It's difficult to say much more without seeing a screen shot of the rating and whatever reason may have been given for flagging it. Saying anything more would simply be a presumptive guess.

Did you ask John about the removal?

That would make sense but the

That would make sense but the other doctor I reviewed has a substantially low rating as well as a trend of negative reviews in recent years, mine is the only one that wouldn't post. If the ratings were flagged than how long until they are reviewed and re-posted?

How do I contact John?

Send him a Private Message at RateMDsJohn.

I sent John a message

I sent John a message indicating what was wrong and what I wanted resolved. One of the reviews was rectified while the other remains unposted. Alarmingly, the negative review posted before me was also removed on the 2nd doctors profile.
