Vitals, Inc., a Lyndhurst, NJ company, has a purported mission to provide prospective patients with as much objective data as is available about a doctor. If you plan to make an appointment with a physician you don’t know yet, check up on him or her on the site. It’s also easy to find a doctor, as one can search by ailment or by specialty. What is even more important, patients and physicians have to log in differently, which makes it possible to create a medical community where medical professionals can build their online reputation.
According to their mission statement:
Vitals was created to give consumers the tools — for the first time — to make intelligent, informed decisions about which doctor to choose.
Our web site offers you a variety of ways to help in your choice of the right doctor.
For physicians, it allows you to keep track of what others are saying, gives you the opportunity to let consumers know about your work, and lets you make sure your profile is complete and accurate.
