OCMA Selects Credential Protection LLC as Preferred Business Partner

Southern California tech company will assist OCMA physician members in battling and improving their online reviews and cyber reputation.

Irvine, Calif., Nov. 4, 2013 - The Orange County Medical Association is pleased to announce another benefit of membership. The OCMA has designated Credential Protection LLC (CP) to assist members in protecting and improving their online reputation.
 
OCMA members may receive complimentary consultations and discounted rates on every reputation and review package that Credential Protection offers.
 
The company was born from the mind of a practicing physician who received some negative reviews before opening his practice! Dr. Doan set out to create a solution for physicians to combat negative reviews without compromising their ethics or costing them their valuable time. "The solution to pollution is dilution." According to Andrew Doan, M.D., PhD, founder and managing partner of Credential Protection. "I chose the name because we spend so much time earning our credentials only to have them smeared online from a couple of angry people with an ax to grind. It seemed like happy patients wouldn't review me even though I handed out campaign cards in the office. So my staff came up with a creative and honest way to give our happy patients a voice online, and this is still the backbone of CP's system. It's really cool to watch it grow and help other physicians."
 
Credential Protection offers a unique and effective way to harvest reviews and get them online for your marketing benefit. CP also offers a suite of other services to help you challenge negative reviews on other sites, track your reputation and grab more spots in the SERP (search engine results pages) for your practice.
 
"No Black hat SEO or astroturfing here," said Daniel Hunt, CEO of Credential Protection. "We have trademarked the Verified Review®. The only certifiably authentic review from your patients that can be digitized and optimized to the front page of the search engines. Many companies offer to place reviews out there on the web for you, but we actually oversee a medical review site with over 20,000 unique visitors a month. Moreover we keep a physical copy of each review our doctors send us. Every review must be signed by the patient and legible to be verified.  Every year we add about 12,000 of these reviews to our website... that's a lot of filing."
 

The strategic business partnership with Credential Protection reinforces OCMA's commitment to bring added value to its members by aligning with companies who offer business practice expertise, allowing physicians to focus their attention on patient care.
