Web Searches About Physicians

JAMA. 2008;300(19):2249-2250. doi:10.1001/jama.2008.657

To the Editor: The Commentary on Web searching for information about physicians by Drs Gorrindo and Groves1 was illuminating but incomplete. As increasing numbers of patients become astute computer users, they will use additional means of obtaining a physician's personal information. Physicians should be aware of countermeasures that can protect them from these intrusive practices.
