Online rating of patient satisfaction of their doctor is increasingly common worldwide. This study of 4157 ratings of Australian doctors found patients were extremely satisfied with their doctor. However, this result was limited by a low prevalence of rated doctors and low numbers of ratings per doctor. Further studies are needed to determine how online rating will affect future practice for all doctors.
