Developed and maintained by a diverse group of web professionals, the website provides a directory of Dermatology Services, Dermatologist, Reviews of service, and article s and educational resource. The ‘Star Rating System’ is prominently displayed on each page are available to allow patients to easily share their experiences online. Contact information is also conveniently available on every page.
According to Dr. Amy Brodsky, founder of The Derm of Chicago, the new website is “a new step in her overall internet marketing program, which also includes search engine optimization, social media and an electronic newsletter”. She also noted that, “with a rating system that is also monitored closely for spam and slander, I can feel safe with my online reputation held at Rate Dermatologist”
Our ultimate goal is to provide an honest and appreciative directory for both Doctor and Patient. We review all request made by the physicians and all negative reviews are dispatched over time. Other sites leave these on for unlimited time periods, but we believe this to be wrong. Even if the negative review is based in fact, that one day out of the physicians’ life should not be cause for future patients to miss out on needed care. Instead, we investigate each review that we are contacted about and drop all negative ratings after a prudent amount of time has passed.
In addition to a rating service, the site will soon host an article submission directory. For a small fee, articles will be reviewed, and if they meet our quality guidelines, added to our Article Directory. The best of these articles will be selected on a monthly basis to be featured in our newsletter.

· Contact forms for reaching individual dermatologist through their profiles will be added to featured accounts in the coming month
· Articles, press releases and newsletters will be available for submission by December.
