CareDash, a venture-backed startup located in Cambridge, MA, is America's fastest growing healthcare review website. CareDash was created in 2016 as a solution for patients looking for transparent and trustworthy information about healthcare providers, practices, and hospitals in their area. Inspired by his own struggles with finding a quality provider through legacy healthcare review websites that were very often out-of-date, inaccurate, and rife with fake or misleading reviews, founder Ted Chan set a course to make CareDash the most transparent, reliable, and informative healthcare review website in the world. Join our team and help us further our mission. Trusted reviews. Trusted care. Trusted Partner.
