Approving Survey Reviews



Launch Survey- Tutorial Video

An overview on reviewing and approving your PBHS Launch Survey Reviews:

Writing A Review

Patients can write a review for you by visiting the link on your website.  Usually this address is (please note, dependent on how your website was setup- it may vary). 

Other ways to access the form include looking for the  icon or browsing through the menus on your website for "Write a Review".

The patient must fill out the required fields on the survey form, including:

  • Overall star rating:

  • Overall comments

  • The patient also decides if he or she would like his or her review to be "approved for publishing" or not. You as the Website Editor or Review Moderator can approve reviews only that are approved for publishing by the patient.

    If the patient has decided NOT to mark his or her review as "approved for publishing", then the "thumbs up" toggle to approve and publish the review will be grayed out and unclickable in the Launch Survey section. 

    • If the patient selects no, and this review isn't approved for publishing- you will see this in your Launch Survey section while looking at this review.
    • The thumbs up icon will be disabled

Once a patient submits a review, a notification will be sent to the email address you provided asking you to log into your account and moderate the review.  If you approve the review it will be published. You can choose to do nothing or unapprove the review, and it will NOT be published.

    8. Additionally, the patient will receive an email alert regarding your response.  If needed, they can reply back by selecting the "Reply Back" button at the bottom of the email.  
      Note, any replies from the patient would first need to "Approved" by your office before they are posted.
