In our endeavour towards making Practo feedback more useful, we have moved to a new system that allows doctors to have a Recommendation Score and Clinics to have Appointment Experience Score. This helps us display feedback for doctors and establishment in a more comprehensive and transparent manner. You can learn more about this in the FAQs.

What is Recommendation Score? How is it calculated?

Recommendation score is calculated from patient feedback. It is computed by taking into account what percentage of all recommendations are positive.

Why is the recommendation score not visible for all doctors?

Practo has a display policy of showing recommendation score only if at least 10 recommendations have been received. It won’t be visible until it crosses this limit. The score will start display as soon as a doctor receives 10 recommendations. This threshold might change in future.

Why has Practo moved to a new system?

Practo received a lot queries and inputs from our users who mentioned that our earlier system was not comprehensive and transparent enough. In our endeavour towards making Practo feedback more useful, we have moved to this new system.
