Transparency Isn’t Valued in Your Favorite Physician Facebook Group

Summary:

An anonymous author asks whether we getting honest recommendations in our favorite physician Facebook group.

I absolutely love the recent anonymous discussion we’re having about physician groups. There’s so much that I want to say. So I’ll say some here.

First of all, thank you to the recent contributor, who anonymously wrote about the different instances where her physician colleagues were unfairly treated by the admin “leaders” of today. I think the whole thing is quite a joke because many of these admins have essentially just opened up a Facebook group. since when does that make someone a leader? It’s all one big joke, and the joke’s sadly on us, the ones in these groups.

Second, I want to point something that wasn’t outwardly stated in the last article.

The admins will sometimes delete comments they either don’t like, don’t agree with, or feel financially compete with their own missions. It is a complete sham, to say the least.

The worse part for me is that there are naive physicians, in these groups, who are legitimately asking questions, and believing that they get a straight answer from anyone that sees their post, when in reality, they aren’t. If admin is deleting comments from her competitors, or from folks that she doesn’t like, then the physician isn’t actually getting honest recommendations. Those honest recommendations are getting “erased” so that the only thing they see is what admin approves of.

HOW IS THIS OK???

Who is going to call out this unethical “leadership” and when are we going to have honest, true leadership, in a group where there is a real way to connect, get advice, and befriend others?

Sincerely, a concerned and disgruntled physician, who happens to also be an entrepreneur.
