Pediatrician Drops Patients After Moms Post Negative Comments On Facebook

Moms wrote in a private Facebook group

Sarah Rubio is part of a closed Facebook group for moms, called Supportive Moms of SWFL. It’s a “safe” place for moms to share information with one another, and offer support and advice.

But it wasn’t such a private or safe place for a mom to post a negative experience about a local pediatrician’s office. A group member posted about a negative experience at Island Coast Pediatrics on the Facebook group, prompting dozens of other moms to comment. Rubio was one of them.

A reminder that even in private groups on Facebook, you need to be careful of what you write.

A closed Facebook group isn’t so private!
