Some life situations are accompanied by a special emotional load. Such circumstances include the disease and the treatment process associated with it, medical visits, etc. At the center of these considerations are doctor‘s assessments published on German physician evaluation portals. These portals are a relatively new phenomenon in virtual space, but as statistics show, they are quickly gaining popularity among users. The analysis of physicians notes extracted from portals aims to answer the question of how writers express their emotions in texts, what emotions are most often manifested and what are they related to.
