I am a surgeon in private practice and, frankly, don't know how I ever did without Dr. Jeff Segal and the absolutely outstanding team at Medical Justice. This team has had my back from the day I signed on about one year ago with extraordinarily prompt, clever, and reasonable advice always delivered with sincere compassion.Private practice can be isolating and, when it comes to patient interactions, the stakes are always high. As a MD/JD, Dr. Segal draws from a wealth of experience to validate and contextualize my concerns while plotting a smooth and effective course to resolution. Most importantly, Medical Justice provides the resources and support to leave me better positioned for the future.I am endlessly grateful to have access to Dr. Segal and Medical Justice as a trusted sounding board and resource. Five stars doesn't seem like enough!

Dr. Jeffrey Segal and Medical Justice are amazing! They helped me deal with a frivolous and false board complaint to my license quickly and professionally. I was impressed with the amount of attention and copious amounts of time they committed to resolving my case. Dr. Segal also helped greatly in advising me how to protect my practice and avoid similar issues moving forward. I'm fortunate to have found their services! While I hope to not have to deal with more frivolous complaints in the future, I feel better knowing that Dr Segal and Medical Justice are there to help me navigate through what may come.

Dr. Jeff Segal is great at what he does! As a physician and lawyer he understands clearly the difficulty of practicing in this day and age. Having both backgrounds is his biggest strength in the medico-legal arena. He gives sound logical advice and is very responsive. I am glad that I trusted him with my issue which he solved by doing background research into the issue from other specialists. He approached the problem like a physician in a very methodical and detail -oriented way. I'm so happy to have found him! I highly recommend!!!

Medical Justice exceeded my expectations on delivery of professional services. Top notch professionals, only the Best, and advisors on every medico-legal area of health care, especially Dentistry, with the Great, Vince Monticello, DDS, MBA, JD, on-board. By far a great investment. I enjoy doing business with Jeff and his Outstanding Team!

I’ve now been a subscriber and client of medical justice for over a year. Dr. and attorney Jeff Segal has been helpful on several occasions. He has guided me through both potential patient issues as well as recent HR pandemic concerns. He along with the Medical Justice team have given me reassuring legal advice that allows me to proceed with confidence through these difficult times. This is one of my best investments in business and personally.

I cannot give enough thanks for Medical Justice’s existence! It is a company that fills such a highly needed niche’ in medicine – especially aesthetic medicine. And it was founded and continues to be led by a visionary, Dr. Jeff Segal. I admire his drive and envy his intelligence. He first completes a rigorous Neurosurgery Residency. That by itself deserves tremendous kudos from anyone in the medical universe. Yet, he eventually goes back to obtain his JD. Yet what he has done in blending those two degrees into an amazing entity, Medical Justice, is nothing short of phenomenal.I was an early adopter of Medical Justice, and all that it provided for me as a surgeon and a business owner, as I am in my 12th year (this year being 2021) of being a member of Medical Justice. Throughout those twelve years, I have leaned on their team in helping maintain a fair and hard-earned online reputation when unfairly attacked. Also, Dr. Segal has always been personally involved with assisting me in resolving conflicts with difficult and unreasonable patients. He has always been only a phone call away, and prompt with his response.What I have especially appreciated is in my discussions resolving these occasional issues with patients over many years, Jeff seems to possess a third therapist certification as a compassionate, empathetic peer that understands my hurt and frustration. He has a way through the phone to put his arm around me, making me feel he sympathizes with my hurt and frustration, and together we will get through whatever issue, and the sun will rise in the morning. He then produces what he promises, as he has threaded the needle to resolution more than once for me. He feels like the big brother I never had that is there for you with honest, realistic guidance to amicable conclusions, when called upon.I just hope I retire before him. I can’t image practicing my specialty without someone like him, as well as his amazing team that he has gathered, that has and continues to have my back. - Dr. Burke Robinson, Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery

Jeff Segal, MD, JD was a tremendous help to me when battling a frivolous and retaliatory complaint to the State Medical Board. Jeff and the Medical Justice team fought immediately and tirelessly to clear this absurd complaint. It was validating, vindicating, and made me have hope again to practice medicine. It renewed my faith in the justice system and made it a pleasure to practice medicine again. Skillful. No - Masterful. There is really nothing that can replace the knowledge of an MD/JD or DO/JD to defend physicians. They were absolutely in my corner. Additionally, Medical Justice found negative reviews that I was not aware of and helped me address those concerns. Well worth every penny!

I cannot recommend a more professional or effective and caring team to help in legal matters which are delicate and require a high level of care. Dr. Segal is one of the most intelligent, thoughtful, and efficient attorneys that I have had that pleasure of working with. He was always available and attentive and demonstrated genuine concern and compassion towards making sure that all matters were handled with the highest level of efficacy. I highly recommend Dr. Segal and his team to any physician or practice, they will not disappoint!

I am an oculofacial plastic surgeon who has been a member of Medical Justice for well over 10 years. It is a pleasure for me to be able to recommend their services to others.We have utilized the Medical Justice consent forms for operative patients throughout this time. It gives me peace of mind to know that any expert witnesses who may be called to give testimony against me are from my specialty. It also gives notice to any potential plaintiff firms that I have not only my malpractice carrier but also Medical Justice working for me should any claims arise, and puts them on notice that any frivolous claims can be in turn be litigated by me against them and the plaintiff.Does this translate to less claims or better results if claims are brought? I can only say that in 30 years of practice I have had a handful of patients request records be sent to plaintiff attorneys, and none have become suits.I can and have offered my highest recommendation for this firm and their services. Their services and client support are outstanding, and are especially beneficial when that letter for your records comes in. To have them on your side is a comfort we can all use.

As a physician, reputation is everything. This is why I’ve trusted Emerit for years! Their unmatched ability to handle my clinic’s online reputation has helped us earn more credibility therefor increasing our patient base. They also create custom surveys for patients along with weekly reports so we can provide better treatment. These little things give us the ability to address certain areas of the practice and fix them immediately. I would highly recommend that healthcare providers to at least consider Emerit when considering an online reputation partner.

I recommend Medical Justice and its founder Dr. Jeff Segal with great enthusiasm. As medicine evolves the private practitioner has become increasingly more isolated. I signed up with Medical Justice so that I would have a sound legal back up for clinical business decision making. My private consultation with Dr. Siegel, neurosurgeon and attorney was insightful. His team, medical justice has already supplied us with appropriate patient forms to help me to continue practicing medicine with confidence. They have already initiated our web presence reviewing with recommendations.Dr. Segal was also readily available for a specific case consultation, and I appreciate his counsel and direction. The peace of mind and collegiality is well worth the investment in Medical Justice.

After a complete nightmare of a frivolous suit in 2002, aided and abetted by the sheer avarice of a competing surgeon right across the street (stunningly, a $2.1 million award over a pea-sized suture granuloma; when it went to the state medical board they dismissed the case as “groundless”), I was advised to join Medical Justice.What a wonderful team! Everyone there has been immediately available for any questions or concerns that have come up over the years. Just having Medical Justice’s cover letter stating that one’s a member will be enough to stop a frivolous threat dead in its tracks — and that alone makes the eminently reasonable annual fee worthwhile many times over.Knowing that Medical Justice “has my back”, and knowing that because of these fabulous people, the worst and most profoundly mind-bending experience of my life would never be allowed to happen again has given me the peace of mind to continue and even enjoy and relish my career over these many years.I can’t say enough about Dr. Jeff Segal, Mike Odden, Wendy Cates and the rest of this amazing team! Joining Medical Justice absolutely will be one of the best decisions of your career. How about 10 stars!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We have been MedicalJustice members for over nine years, and this is a service that has been priceless for us, and our facial plastic surgical practice. Ninety percent of our new patients cite the Internet as their source of referral, so for us, our internet reputation is priceless. Plus my kids see what's on the internet about our practice. MedicalJustice scours the internet for any online posts about your practice, good and bad. Even if you are able to do things exceedingly well, it is unlikely that you will be able to deliver impeccable care with exemplary bedside manner 100% of the time, have the perfect staff, and count zero competitors. And thus, unfortunately, being defamed on the Internet is an occupational hazard.I recommend MedicalJustice without reservation to any medical practice, since nearly all patients will google you before calling for an appointment. Everyone at MedicalJustrice from our advisor Shannon, to the CEO, Dr Jeff Segal, is knowledgeable, friendly, and genuinely glad to help physician practices like ours. I am grateful for all they have done to help our "mom and pop shop" thrive, and navigate unchartered waters on the internet. MedicalJustice has been outstanding for our practice in these situations :1)Reputation management. The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery recommended MedicalJustice to all members in 2009, and after we got on-board, we were surprised to see more than a few negative internet reviews and comments about our practice. Frankly, I do not have the time nor desire to actively surveil the internet about our practice, but someone NEEDS to. If you don't read it, someone googling your practice will.2) Dealing with negative reviews in a safe and HiPAA compliant fashion. Some internet "specialists" recommend ignoring bad reviews, but for us, that philosophy is not cool. 12% of patients who request rhinoplasty have BDD, and as of August2018, there is no reliable method for ruling this out preoperatively. The small minority of unhappy postoperative patients may post on multiple sites, and have the longest and most painful words. MedicalJustice has helped us A LOT in this arena.3) Dealing with internet defamation.4) How to manage the disgruntled patient, and more importantly, the "difficult" scenario where you don't know what to do, and it's not malpractice.5) How to manage patients threatening to harm themselves or others.6) How to manage patients demanding a refund.7) Advice with patients threatening to sue.8) Advice with copyright infringement.9) Obtaining positive reviews from our patients with eMerit.If any physicians wish to reach out to us for any questions, it would be our pleasure. Thank you. Dr Joseph

No medical professional should be without this service! I have been a long time member and will never give up my membership. I have never had such clear and concise solutions to common issues, education regarding what I need to do and how to be best prepared for common issues that arise. Whenever I have had a question, I get immediate responses that are clear, concise and of great value! Honestly - the first time you run into a difficult situation is not the time to realize you SHOULD HAVE had this service. You need to be aware, and appropriate- this service is absolutely the best resource you could want for you to meet your obligations, as well as be prepared for common issues. Not only has Dr Segal experienced both sides of many of these issues- he is brilliant, and condenses issues down - allowing you options that allow for the smoothest possible outcome for all involved. I honestly could not recommend it more!CR MD

Impeccable service and reputation from the CEO on down. Helped me grow my practice by vastly improving the quality of my online presence. In addition, I am now insulated from the occasional anonymous and damaging online reviews. I see many additional new patients who have “googled” me and have read my numerous outstanding reviews. In addition they have helped protect me from frivolous law suits while readily providing expert legal advice. In this day and age, in my opinion, every physician needs Medical Justice standing behind them. Thank you, Medical Justice!

Our surgical practice joined Medical Justice and eMerit many years ago and it has been an invaluable resource and support. Jeff Segal, the founder, is a surgeon and an attorney who understands the challenges that physicians face today. They have been our advisors, mentors and dispensers of wisdom for any and every issue that we presented to them as well as in growing our practice. I can't imagine running our practice without them all of these years.

It only took one reading for me to become a big fan of Leonard Berlin's.Who was Leonard Berlin?He's the radiologist who countersued a plaintiff who tried to make a fast buck by frivolously suing him. When I finally met him, I told him that I'd been following what he was doing.Berlin was the first MD I knew who fought back. When I read about Medical Justice, it was clear to me that in case I got sued frivolously, I, too, would be able to counterpunch.Raised by a pair of criminal lawyers in New Orleans (yes, really), I pretty much had a (legalistic) chip on my shoulder from childhood. Medical Justice welded it there. Instead of being a 98-pound weakling in the face of a pseudo-legal assault, it made me a Charles Atlas kinda guy.No fear after joining up. I was surprised at how reasonable the rates are.

After a complete nightmare of a frivolous suit in 2002, aided and abetted by the sheer avarice of a competing surgeon right across the street (stunningly, a $2.1 million award over a pea-sized suture granuloma; when it went to the state medical board they dismissed the case as “groundless”), I was advised to join Medical Justice.What a wonderful team! Everyone there has been immediately available for any questions or concerns that have come up over the years. Just having Medical Justice’s cover letter stating that one’s a member will be enough to stop a frivolous threat dead in its tracks — and that alone makes the eminently reasonable annual fee worthwhile many times over.Knowing that Medical Justice “has my back”, and knowing that because of these fabulous people, the worst and most profoundly mind-bending experience of my life would never be allowed to happen again has given me the peace of mind to continue and even enjoy and relish my career over these many years.I can’t say enough about Dr. Jeff Segal, Mike Odden, Wendy Cates and the rest of this amazing team! Joining Medical Justice absolutely will be one of the best decisions of your career. How about 10 stars!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We have been MedicalJustice members for over nine years, and this is a service that has been priceless for us, and our facial plastic surgical practice. Ninety percent of our new patients cite the Internet as their source of referral, so for us, our internet reputation is priceless. Plus my kids see what's on the internet about our practice. MedicalJustice scours the internet for any online posts about your practice, good and bad. Even if you are able to do things exceedingly well, it is unlikely that you will be able to deliver impeccable care with exemplary bedside manner 100% of the time, have the perfect staff, and count zero competitors. And thus, unfortunately, being defamed on the Internet is an occupational hazard.I recommend MedicalJustice without reservation to any medical practice, since nearly all patients will google you before calling for an appointment. Everyone at MedicalJustrice from our advisor Shannon, to the CEO, Dr Jeff Segal, is knowledgeable, friendly, and genuinely glad to help physician practices like ours. I am grateful for all they have done to help our "mom and pop shop" thrive, and navigate unchartered waters on the internet. MedicalJustice has been outstanding for our practice in these situations :1)Reputation management. The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery recommended MedicalJustice to all members in 2009, and after we got on-board, we were surprised to see more than a few negative internet reviews and comments about our practice. Frankly, I do not have the time nor desire to actively surveil the internet about our practice, but someone NEEDS to. If you don't read it, someone googling your practice will.2) Dealing with negative reviews in a safe and HiPAA compliant fashion. Some internet "specialists" recommend ignoring bad reviews, but for us, that philosophy is not cool. 12% of patients who request rhinoplasty have BDD, and as of August2018, there is no reliable method for ruling this out preoperatively. The small minority of unhappy postoperative patients may post on multiple sites, and have the longest and most painful words. MedicalJustice has helped us A LOT in this arena.3) Dealing with internet defamation.4) How to manage the disgruntled patient, and more importantly, the "difficult" scenario where you don't know what to do, and it's not malpractice.5) How to manage patients threatening to harm themselves or others.6) How to manage patients demanding a refund.7) Advice with patients threatening to sue.8) Advice with copyright infringement.9) Obtaining positive reviews from our patients with eMerit.If any physicians wish to reach out to us for any questions, it would be our pleasure. Thank you. Dr Joseph

No medical professional should be without this service! I have been a long time member and will never give up my membership. I have never had such clear and concise solutions to common issues, education regarding what I need to do and how to be best prepared for common issues that arise. Whenever I have had a question, I get immediate responses that are clear, concise and of great value! Honestly - the first time you run into a difficult situation is not the time to realize you SHOULD HAVE had this service. You need to be aware, and appropriate- this service is absolutely the best resource you could want for you to meet your obligations, as well as be prepared for common issues. Not only has Dr Segal experienced both sides of many of these issues- he is brilliant, and condenses issues down - allowing you options that allow for the smoothest possible outcome for all involved. I honestly could not recommend it more!CR MD

Impeccable service and reputation from the CEO on down. Helped me grow my practice by vastly improving the quality of my online presence. In addition, I am now insulated from the occasional anonymous and damaging online reviews. I see many additional new patients who have “googled” me and have read my numerous outstanding reviews. In addition they have helped protect me from frivolous law suits while readily providing expert legal advice. In this day and age, in my opinion, every physician needs Medical Justice standing behind them. Thank you, Medical Justice!

Our surgical practice joined Medical Justice and eMerit many years ago and it has been an invaluable resource and support. Jeff Segal, the founder, is a surgeon and an attorney who understands the challenges that physicians face today. They have been our advisors, mentors and dispensers of wisdom for any and every issue that we presented to them as well as in growing our practice. I can't imagine running our practice without them all of these years.

I have been a client of Medical Justice for many years. They provide a fantastic opportunity for Healthcare providers to defend against frivolous claims and to control their reviews using the eMerit platform.The service and the reviews have been extremely valuable to my practice, my social media presence and ratings as well as protection against some false claims over the years.They are always available, responsive and timely in their assistance. Dr. Segal offers a wealth of resources, insight and legal advice due to his vast experience in this venue.I highly recommend this service for anyone with a medical or dental practice.

It only took one reading for me to become a big fan of Leonard Berlin's.Who was Leonard Berlin?He's the radiologist who countersued a plaintiff who tried to make a fast buck by frivolously suing him. When I finally met him, I told him that I'd been following what he was doing.Berlin was the first MD I knew who fought back. When I read about Medical Justice, it was clear to me that in case I got sued frivolously, I, too, would be able to counterpunch.Raised by a pair of criminal lawyers in New Orleans (yes, really), I pretty much had a (legalistic) chip on my shoulder from childhood. Medical Justice welded it there. Instead of being a 98-pound weakling in the face of a pseudo-legal assault, it made me a Charles Atlas kinda guy.No fear after joining up. I was surprised at how reasonable the rates are.

I have been using E Merit and Medical Justice’s services for the last nine years. I have found their helpful feedback to be of tremendous value to me and to my practice. I am extremely grateful to Jeff Segal and his entire team for their thoughtful and professional help. You will not be sorry if you give them a chance. I don’t know anyone who has not found them immensely helpful or who has stop using them once they have engaged their services.
