Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) August 30, 2005
In a recent interview on NPR with healthcare talk show personality Julie Isphording, Joe Benza, Jr., CEO of http://www.Cincinnati.MD, discussed the new healthcare website and the benefits of the new patient rating and feedback feature.
ÂThe unique feedback feature on the website provides doctors and others with more information concerning many of the characteristics that patients want from their doctors, including timeliness, accessibility, explanation of the diagnosis, time spent and overall satisfaction with the visit. This feature, combined with the over 6,900 healthcare professionals information that is listed, makes http://www.Cincinnati.MD an extremely valuable resource for consumers in Greater Cincinnati to use when selecting a doctor,Â says Joe Benza, Jr.
Following the interview, Julie Isphording said, ÂThe positive response to the show was overwhelming. It was one of our top-rated shows in terms of ratings and email. It is obvious that http://www.Cincinnati.MD is filling a need in the community and what I like best about the website is that now anyone can make a difference in healthcare - simply by leaving their feedback.Â
The http://www.Cincinnati.MD site is the only local website offering consumers a free, healthcare resource that provides comprehensive information, including ratings and word of mouth feedback, on over 6,900 medical professionals in Greater Cincinnati. This dynamic healthcare website also provides a medium for physicians to gain insight into their patientÂs satisfaction of their service to help improve the quality of care delivered. The http://www.Cincinnati.MD website is just the first of 500 healthcare city websites being launched across the United States in 2006 by Directories.MD. Anyone can participate in the new healthcare program at no charge by going to the http://www.Cincinnati.MD site, choosing your doctor and clicking the leave feedback link. Directories.MD is running a $1,000 feedback contest for patients to encourage them to leave feedback for their doctors.
