We cannot do this without your help.We need you to memorize Dr. Good's Review Link: you type this link into your phone or computer (give it a try), it will send you online to write a review for Dr. Good. The link is smart. It knows where the doctor needs a review, so it might go to different websites each time you access it. This behavior is normal.When you notice that a patient is satisfied, please ask them to leave feedback for us by visiting They can do it on their mobile devices in the office or at home.Here is how to ask patients for a review:Towards the end of the patient's visit, ask, "How is your visit going? Can I get you anything?"If you sense that the patient is happy, ask, "If it wouldn't be too much trouble, would you leave us feedback online? You can do it right from your phone. Just go to"You can write the link down on a sheet of paper for the patient if he or she prefers to take it home. At this point, you should also let the patient know that if they need anything at all they can call the office and we'll take care of it.Getting positive reviews is critical to our success in 2014 and beyond. We need to do everything possible to make sure that our online reviews match our quality of care. The only way we can succeed here is with your help.Please call or email me if you have any questions.Sincerely,Office Manager
  • Quiz your staff in the hallways about how to ask for online reviews. They should be able to recite the warm up, "How was your visit? Can I get you anything?" Then they should move to, "If it wouldn't be too much trouble, would you leave us feedback online? You can do it right from your mobile phone:"
  • One thing you may want to consider is ordering a pack of Review MiniCards so your doctor and staff don't have to write the Review Link down. It costs $29 for a pack of 100 MiniCards.
