Patients can enter text into the multiple search bars available on the site. Those search values can consist of your location, symptom, condition, treatment, insurance information, gender, and even specific surgical procedure. Our system consists of an extremely robust library of medical terms relating to the foot and ankle specialty. Our goal with PatientGo is to provide an easy and effective in-site search mechanism without having to be a medical professional yourself. Additionally, our team of dedicated account support representatives are always working with the physicians and their staff to keep their profile information up-to-date and as accurate as possible.

What is Relief Certification™


Relief Certified™️ validation and certification process is designed to give you, the patient, peace of mind that the doctor you choose has the qualifications and standard of excellence you can trust. Finding a physician can be a daunting and overwhelming task. It is our goal to make sure the physicians interacting with the Relief Institute have the necessary medical credentials and surgical training/experience you deserve. Relief Institute takes pride in our validation and certification process so that you feel confident that a doctor within the Relief Institute is representing core values.

Relief Institute’s certification process has strict standards. Physicians must pass multiple validation criteria before he or she is officially approved and added to our system. Our Certification process ensures the legitimacy and experience of the Doctor’s credentials through a detailed review of their medical license status, malpractice insurance, DEA Registration, and Patient Satisfaction Scores. In addition, we go even further to validate the level of professionalism and experience in their field with verifying surgical experience and skill (number of cases completed within their specialty), Board certification and Fellowship training, participation in medical publications “thought leader”, physician for amateur and/or professional sport teams, and additional surgical technique training and/or implant training certification. Even after a physician is added to our system, we review their credentials on a yearly basis for any irregularities that might restrict them from providing you with the quality of care we strive for at the Relief Institute. In the event a credentialing or license issue arises with a certified physician, we will address it immediately and take the necessary steps to correct. They will be given time to correct the issue or be removed from our program. In order for a physician to be Relief Certified™️, he must pass validation of the following core criteria requirements:

  • Confirmation of Education and Medical Training
  • State Medical License is current and clear
  • Validation of Board Certification(s)
  • Verify Medical/Professional Associations and Certifications
  • Verify current coverage of Malpractice Insurance
  • OIG, SAM, FDA exclusion and debarment search
  • DEA Certification is current with no restrictions
  • Standard background check
  • Verify Business History and Locations

Again, by choosing the Relief Institute, the research has been done for you! Today more than ever it’s imperative to check and validate your doctor’s credentials. Our doctors go through the Relief Certified™️ process on a yearly basis to ensure they are maintaining and staying current on their medical licensing, credentialing, and qualifications to provide you with the standard of care required by the Relief Institute.

How does PatientGo work?

Our specific search mechanism functions in a similar fashion as many sites you might frequent.  The PatientGo search was developed to assist patients with locating a qualified physician in their area as efficiently as possible utilizing several search values. Patients can enter text into the multiple search bars available on the site. Those search values can consist of your location, symptom, condition, treatment, insurance information, gender, and even specific surgical procedure.

How do you ensure a Doctor has the necessary qualifications to be listed on the Relief Institute?

When a doctor signs up to be listed on ReliefInstitute.com, they go through an initial verification process before they are onboarded to the site, whether they execute a Free profile or an Enhanced profile. If a Doctor signs up for a free profile, we confirm their medical license, good standing to practice in the state, their education, board certifications, and surgical experience before they are approved to be listed. If the Doctor opts for the Enhanced profile listing, that includes our inclusive Relief Certification™️ process. Given the additional information available within that profile listing, our Relief Certification™️ process consists of a more robust background check of each Doctor. The Relief Certification background check goes a step further than the standard check done on free listings. We check on government exclusion and debarment search, DEA certification, Malpractice insurance coverage, and more. Once information is approved then they will receive approval on the Relief Institute website. As an aside, the Relief Institute does not make any representations about the doctor and their ability to provide medical and surgical care.

Do you provide Doctors with multiple listing options on ReliefInstitute.com?

Yes. We provide Doctors with two listing options. They can sign up and be listed on Reliefinstitute.com for free or they can choose to upgrade to an Enhanced profile that contains more information about the doctor and clinic.

Do the Doctors pay for the Enhanced profile?

Yes. Doctors can choose to upgrade their Free listing to an Enhanced listing that consists of more information about the doctor and their clinic and additional information about medical experience including, but not limited to, special surgical technique and implant training, publications/research, and a thorough background check through our Relief Certification™ process. The Enhanced profile listing requires constant content management and updating by the Relief Institute team.
