Does anyone know what can be done for erroneous negative reviews on health grades or similar websites? There’s a patient who wrote a review about me and I checked months worth of notes - I never saw this patient. She cited a virtual visit that we don’t do at the office and said the appointment was at a time I wasn’t at the office. Not sure why they wrote the review but I wish it could be removed because I’m worried it will affect my future career prospects. Thanks!

Health care is being rationed in several states. This is getting serious. This is definitely worth learning more about as hospital refuse critically ill patients who do not have covid. Emergency rooms are literally flooded, critically ill pts (w covid) wait hours on end in their car to get in to see a doctor.

Anyone else seriously struggling with going back to the office? I’m going in three days a week and my mental health is… not great. I’m constantly miserable when there.
Since covid started I’ve been working with a team of doctors and scientists to develop a self contained rapid antigen test. Trials run by the cdc and NY health and hospitals have shown it’s as reliable as a pcr test but results come back in 15 min. We are looking to get the test into the market by the holidays but are in need of capital. Does anyone here have access to family offices or something similar?
My close friend has failed the bar for a second time. This comes as a true shock for them. I know they have a very close family support system that’s local/ they are in good hands for mental health. They have not reached out, at what point do I? (It’s only been a day) / how can I support them?

I have a job, and I’m grateful that I do! But it makes me extremely unhappy. I’m talked down to constantly, our client treats us like we’re dumb and they have no trust for the creative team, and I’m constantly anxious. How do I find a new gig during these (forgive me for saying this) unprecedented times? Or what do I do/say if I want to switch accounts within my agency? I need some advice from other women who’ve been through this and succeeded at finding something that makes them happier.

Had an interview scheduled for Tuesday just now.
