Part of the dynamic I believe as an attorney who specializes in online and internet defamation of character, as well as doctor defamation is that in many instances it’s a blame the messenger situation. Where the physician is generating bills which are sometimes very onerous on patients who can’t pay them. That doctors are the ones who are providing their patients with bad news sometimes about their health condition. That not every patient can be cured, and therefore the blame the doctor phenomena will spit out this anger that is sometimes expressed on the internet. So doctors are sometimes subject to unfair and unwarranted commentary by their patients; and in some instances by other doctors who are posing as patients. Sometimes that commentary will involve false statements of fact about the doctor, which can meet the test of defamation of character under state law.
