Doctored Reviews | Why Medical Justice's Anti-Review Contracts are a Poison Pill - This site is designed to help patients, doctors, and websites understand the problems created by Medical Justice, a company trying to restrict online patient reviews, and to offer some ways that let patients freely talk about their healthcare experiences. Medical Justice sells contracts to doctors—we call them “anti-review contracts”— that either expressly prohibit patients’ online…

  • https://doctoredreviews.com/patients/ For Patients | Doctored Reviews - What is an anti-review contract?  An anti-review contract, often ironically labeled a “Mutual Agreement to Maintain Privacy,” is a contract where patients give up some or all of their freedom to review their doctor online.

  • do some research! - do some research!

    I do own this hose, it's fine, holds up well. But I'm writing in response to the cancer references. Please, do some research before you write comments! When I looked on Google:water hose cancer, I found the information I need to know when buying water hoses from any manufacturer.

  • Amazon Customer - Not what I was expecting

    This book was categorized as being a psychological thriller. It it's not even close to a psychological thriller. Basically it's about spouses cheating on each other and how the main character grows personally. I found how much she changed to be unbelievable in such a short span of time. I was also very disappointed with the ending. Really, the husband gets just a slap on the wrist for all he's done? AND she lets him wait for years, when it's most convenient for him and her, to tell anyone his secret? Just very unsatisfying for the reader.

  • Twin Ports Travel Agency - Very Low-dose Caffeine

    32mg of Caffeine in each tab (according to another supplement sales website). I purchased to replace 200mg vivarin caffeine tablets and did not get the effect I was looking for until taking far too many to make this purchase cost effective. No side effects from this product and it would be best suited for someone who is not a habitual caffeine user. Very frustrating I had to scour the internet to get the caffeine dosage; it should be in the product facts. I would not have purchased such a low dose knowing my tolerance.
