Avvo, the Seattle-based company that runs an online ratings service that profiles lawyers, said today it is expanding to provide online ratings of physicians. Avvo says its service will offer consumers detailed information on a doctor’s “background, experience, and disciplinary record.” The company says it has compiled profiles on 800,000 physicians around the country. Avvo raised $10 million in March from DAG Ventures, Benchmark Capital, and Ignition Partners
