Doctors Nationwide are Suing Patients Who Post Negative Reviews Online

Recent cases include a Cleveland, Ohio-based physician, who is suing a former patient for defamation after she posted negative reviews about her nose job, an Arizona medical practice that successfully sued a singer who used her own website to criticize her doctors and a Michigan hospital that sued an elderly patient’s daughters and granddaughter over a Facebook post.
