Reader LS left the following coenmmt which I will respond to in the coming days:My interest was piqued by your piece today re: the use of social media by your patients. But what if patients post erroneous information? The potential for providing inaccurate description and assessments of research is particularly problematic. As well, coenmmts that question your integrity (e.g., that you providing treatment just to earn insurance reimbursement) could be particularly harmful and difficult to refute (because there's no way to do so without seeming to be defensive). In both cases, how do prevent incorrect information from going "viral?"
