    I am a Licensed Acupuncturist by profession.

    In our state of Utah, a chiropractor can do acupuncture with as little as 100 hours of training.

    There are 3 different chiropractors that are doing acupuncture in my area.
    These guys are telling their patients they have much better training than a Licensed Acupuncturist, go figure?.

    So after I had 5 different patients come to my office because they got hurt and the acupuncture was painful when these chiropractors did the acupuncture, I decided to try to educate the public.

    I made up a google account with a fake name and posted a review for 2 of these chiropractors.

    The one reviewed has stayed up for the one chiropractor, the other review for the other chiropractor has been deleted. I have put up the different reviews and each time the review is deleted within hours after putting it up.

    From my understanding its very difficult to get a review deleted so how is this being done so easily. I would also appreciate any advice on how to keep this review up.

    Google Review I posted:
    This is just for a heads up for any of you considering using a chiropractor for acupuncture. In most cases, chiropractors may have a 100 hour course in acupuncture which is either only a few weekends of training or may be a combination of weekend training and internet training. A Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac.) will generally have at least 2000 to 3000 hours in acupuncture education, training and clinical experience prior to being licensed as a Licensed Acupuncturist.I am not sure about you but before I have someone putting needles in my body and charging me for it, I want to make sure this person is qualified to do this.

    Just a heads up: A member with the name of DopeArticle and skype name DopeArticle Article, is scamming people on BHW claiming to be able to leave reviews. Be careful and do not give this person your money!

    Did you post the reviews from the same account from the same IP and so on. If so that could be the issue with them not staying. Also post other reviews with the account over time so it doesnt look odd that you just created an account and posted a review.

    You posted that review verbatim on both profiles? I wouldn't be surprised if the chiropractors simply flagged the review and got it taken down.

    Perhaps a better strategy would have been to tell your clients who came from the chiropractors to leave an honest review, that is after you educate them on the issue.
