NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A negative Yelp review of a Manhttan doctor has resulted in a $1 million lawsuit.

A Manhattan woman said her doctor came after her with a defamation lawsuit after she gave the gynecologist a one-star review on Yelp and ZocDoc.

Michelle Levine tells the New York Post that she's spent nearly $20,000 defending herself and described the situation as a nightmare.

She says she gave an honest review of her experience to warn others. She claimes the doctor performed unnecessary procedures and then charged higher prices to insurance companies.

The lawsuit filed by Dr. Joon Song points to his training at Yale University and accuses Levine of false postings and online harassment.
