Eyes on Healthcare

I don’t know about you, but I lost count to the number of times I felt mistreated, misdiagnosed, or simply screwed over by hospitals, medical clinics and -specially- insurance companies. And the worst part was that nobody would know about my frustration but maybe the handful of people who read this blog.

But hopefully, that won’t be the case anymore.

There is a new portal, a medical one, that lists every hospital, private clinic, pharmacy and insurance company; not only in the UAE, but in the entire GCC area.

The best thing about it is that for every listed entity, the portals added a user-generated star rating system and allows submiting comments and feedback. The portal offers a true Web 2.0 experience. It is easy to look at and to use, and requires neither registration nor verification.

If you have something good to say about a doctor or a hospital, I encourage you to submit it there. But if you have a negative experience, I’d URGE you share it. So that those so called “medical professionals” can know that someone is now watching them and they can’t get away with murder anymore.

Thanks @PamelaFrey for the tip
