TO ALL USERS OF HEALTHTAP, BOTH PHYSICIANS AND NON-PHYSICIANS:Dr. Cheng believes that HealthTap can play a vital role for individuals who need questions answered without getting a diagnosis. He also believes that it is reward enough to help those in need and that no additional reward is needed. As such, he DOES NOT ask for or seek votes, recommendations, awards or other accolades. Instead, he believes that the true ranking of a physician is based on 1) the quality of his answers, 2) the number of colleagues who agree with his answers, and 3) the genuine and heartfelt "thank you" notes and thank you's. This is reward enough. Lastly, he will "agree" with physician answers when appropriate, but will not recommend or vote for physicians as he has no personal knowledge of that physician's skills, personality, traits, bedside manner, or practice style.
