Talkswell, Whichdoc and Peer Reviewing the Internet

A few websites I’ve recently come across.


Using your social network, WhichDoc brings together doctor referrals from people you actually know and trust — your friends. The more friends you have using WhichDoc the more referrals you’ll have to help you make these tough choices. Three simple steps create a highly customized list of physicians who matched the criteria you’ve set.


Everyone should be a part of the health and wellness conversation, but not everyone has access to a platform that helps them share their wisdom or learn from others. Until now.

A new site,, aims to be a peer-review system for the Internet. It will be a distributed, open-source platform for the collaborative evaluation of information and will allow us to parse and critique words across the internet at the sentence-level through community peer-review.

  1. WhichDoc feels like great project but it needs some more exposure to start snowball effect. This service needs loads of users to really get it moving, otherwise it’s great service but can’t exist without users

  2. I too think WhichDoc is something I could get down with. Especially since most other review sites are filled with ‘reviews’ from the businesses themselves or some weirdo person I could care less about.
    The checkup thing that tells you what you should be getting checked out at your age is a pretty cool tool as well. I like being part of something cool & new, but I hope it takes off too so the results are expansive.

  3. Hi Michael and Steve – You are both right! This site becomes more valuable with every new patient that logs in. So help us out and please invite friends! We made it super easy to invite friends through FB… sends a simple notification to your friends.
