Law - "A Patient Sues His Dentist Over a Contractual Ban on His Posting Negative Online Reviews of Her Work"

This article was pretty eye-opening to me. Law prof Anita Ramasastry's Dec. 6th consumer law column at Justia's Verdict begins:

In this column, I will discuss the growing trend of doctors, dentists, and other healthcare providers using contracts—typically, contracts provided by the company Medical Justice—in an attempt to decrease or eliminate the negative reviews that are posted about them on popular consumer-ratings websites.

I will focus, in particular, on a recent consumer class action lawsuit that challenges such contracts, and then go on to describe other measures that have been taken, or suggested, in this area.
