Over the last 2 decades, physicians have been subject to an increasing array of payers’ measures of their performance. The public also has embraced measures of physician performance by sharing perspectives about physicians and their practices via online physician rating sites.1 Reports indicate that about one-quarter of US adults have used a physician rating site2 and information on such sites can affect users’ decisions about choosing physicians.3
