- FindaDoc’s RATINGS AND OPINION INFORMATION
FindaDoc’s proprietary physician-rating system considers publicly-available information on physicians and user opinions. Factual information regarding education, background, residencies, fellowships and positions held has been obtained from publicly-available sources. FindaDoc makes no independent statements of fact concerning such information, other than the general statement that the factual information reported on the Site reflects the factual information in various databases or databanks of publicly-available information in the various states. FindaDoc takes this information, compiles it and applies a rating for a physician based on his education, training, and positions held. FindaDoc does not consider the status of any malpractice complaints or claims against a doctor, either pending or resolved. FindaDoc does not consider the absence of any pending malpractice claims or judgments against a doctor. Because many malpractice claims are groundless, and many claims are or may be settled by an insurance company for reasons other than the actual liability of a physician, we do not include them in our rating system. Information regarding malpractice claims against a particular doctor, if any, may be available from publicly-available databanks. If you are interested in discovering such information about a particular doctor, check your state’s web-site for the availability of access to such a databank.
Comments regarding particular physicians are sought and obtained from Site users. These comments are mere opinions of the user, and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of FindaDoc, its employees, or its agents. Such statements should be weighed and treated as mere opinions of the particular user, and not as fact.
FindaDoc does not, and will not, recommend or endorse any specific physicians, products, procedures, opinions, or other information that may be mentioned on the Site. FindaDoc is not a referral service. FindaDoc provides selected information about certain physicians. We cannot and do not offer advice regarding the quality or skill of any particular physician for any specific treatments or health conditions. You should obtain all additional information necessary to make an informed decision prior to using any physician. The information on the Site is something you may wish to consider, but there are numerous factors to consider. Reliance on any information provided by FindaDoc, FindaDoc employees, or others appearing on the Site is completely and solely at your own risk.
You agree that you assume all responsibility in connection with choosing any physician, whether or not you obtained information about such physician on or through the Site. We assume no responsibility or liability for any advice, treatment or other services rendered by any physician, or for any malpractice claims and/or other claims that may arise directly or indirectly from any such advice, treatment or other services.
