Dr. Ramin Rak recognizes that the way patients acquire information has changed. Many patients used to ask friends, other doctors, or insurance providers to recommend the best specialist when it was necessary to treat a specific condition. Now patients turn to the internet to find the best doctors, reading patient reviews on sites like Vitals and HealthGrades, or comments left on a Facebook page. Doctors embrace these mediums because they want patients to view them as transparent.
