RealSelf is a no-nonsense destination for reviews and opinions to help you find the right doctor. We don’t remove doctor profiles but we may restrict their accounts in certain circumstances.
That means any public content -- the doctor’s profile and reviews about them, for example -- won’t be removed. However we may remove a doctor’s account. This restricts the provider’s access to RealSelf and removes special designations (like Verified) and consultation forms.
Public content stays public
Doctor’s access to their account may be restricted or removed
Account removal is an internal decision and we don’t share the nitty gritty details publicly, but we may add wording to their profile, such as “account suspended” or “license suspended,” to indicate the reason for removal.
