"Lawyers and Predators Alike Will Use Your Web Site Against You"
A doctor on the east coast asked me to review his Web site. At first glance, it was very pretty, but upon digging further, here are my comments:
Basically, it is a very good Web site, but the following statement can hang you. If I were a defense lawyer, I could discredit you in about 10 seconds based upon these words...
"If a patient has high blood pressure, a standard medical approach would be to choose a drug that lowers blood pressure, and ask the patient to take the drug. This may serve to lower the blood pressure, but ignores the underlying cause that is making the blood pressure high, and runs the risk of side effects complicating the person’s recovery. Whether it’s a nutritional issue, faulty control by the nerve system or a manifestation of stress, the medication could decrease the blood pressure, leaving the problem causing the symptom of high blood pressure unaddressed."
It was taken from your Web site and there is ZERO here that would excite a lawyer to work with you and there is certainly nothing within the site to make him/her feel compelled to use you as an expert. FURTHERMORE, why in the world would you put your personal family information out to the world??? There is no place for this on a professional site and it would scare the crap out of me in this crazy world to tell every predator that a successful doctor with money has 3 children!!!
YOU SCARE ME WITH YOUR CHOICES. Remember, everything you have on the Web is public information, giving everyone you want and sometimes everyone you do not want access to your life.
The information on the US Chiropractic Directory will accomplish what you want. If you feel that you want more information out there, great, but now read it as both defense and plaintiff lawyers would as well as every predator out there looking to separate you from your money.
