Zagat rates your doctor

According to Insurance and Technology, health insurer WellPoint has partnered with Zagat’s Survey to allow WellPoint’s members to rate their doctors.  Zagat’s will use its 30 point rating system to evaluate all doctors.  According to Spirit magazine, patients can grade doctors based on “including doctor availability, office environment, trustworthiness, and communication.”

Other websites, such as, already offer patients the ability to rate doctors, but WellPoint is the first health insurer to offer this service to its members.
