We all love Yelp and Google+ for restaurants, rentals, and retail, but finding a reputable doctor online can be a bit more intimidating.  If you're a patient or a medial professional, the world of social proof marketing has a whole universe of websites and apps specifically for you to leave and access reviews.  One of the most popular websites for finding a doctor and checking crowd-sourced reviews is Healthgrades.  If you have an account with them, you can even use their free app — available on the App Store — to leave a review before you've left the doctor's office.  Just like Yelp, Healthgrades makes reputation marketing easy for both the patient and the doctor dependent on word-of-mouth for referrals.  Keep reading for our simple step-by-step instructions for using Healthgrades' app to leave a review!
