I had been sick for several years with an easily treatable illness. Eventually I figured out using the Internet what it was and I got better. Later I thought to check the reviews of the GP would been less than helpful - turns out everyone considered him a quack and had very similar experiences to my own. Had I checked earlier I would have pushed a lot harder for a better source of advice.
Some doctors are just terrible and patients should have the means of discovering that without having to go through their own needless tragedies through incompetent medicine when they get sick.
