Do I have to register to find doctors?

Where does BadakTabib obtain the information regarding doctors’ Training and Expertise?
All factual information is obtained from the doctor Himself.

Can doctors update factual information that could affect their rating?
Yes, doctors have full access to their profiles and all their factual information. Doctors can confirm and update their Medical School, Residency Program, Fellowship, Advanced Training, Awards, and Hospital Affiliation.

Is it possible for doctors to post false information on their profiles?
BadakTabib always tries to validate and verify the doctors profiles using government records and reliable third-party data. If a discrepancy is found, BadakTabib will contact the doctor to verify the information.

How can doctors benefit from using BadakTabib?
There are three main ways doctors can benefit from BadakTabib:

  1. By accessing anonymous opinions from patients on Patient Opinion, doctors get valuable information on patient perception of their practice, as well as their own personal strengths and weaknesses.
  2. Connecting and networking with other Doctors.
  3. Potentially advertising to millions of patients by becoming a Featured Doctor.

Are you limited to searching for doctors solely by name?
No, you can also search by Specialty, Location (Governate, District and City).

How can I find out if any doctors are involved in clinical trials or research?
Currently, there is no way to search for a doctor based on their current research. However, many of the Featured Doctors list research that they have completed or research they are currently working on. BadakTabib does not verify this data.

Why are malpractice incidences not included in a doctor’s profile and score?
Malpractice allegations are difficult to evaluate and do not necessarily reflect a doctor’s expertise or professionalism. Allegations are made for a variety of reasons and the outcomes are varied. Also some specialties are more at risk for lawsuits than others. For these reasons, BadakTabib does not include malpractice cases in a doctors rating. It is the patient’s responsibility to research malpractice cases.
