Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

The staff are extremely friendly and attentive. The nurse practitioner is very knowledgeable, mild mannered and professional. I feel like I am in a very personal setting. Yet, there is one person, who is very nice, who was professing her/his Christianity to me in a most inappropriate manner. She/he told me that she/he was "Born Again," and with that she/he went on and on about her/his Christian beliefs. When I told her/him that I was not necessarily in line with her/his beliefs, she/he became animated and told me she/he would pray for me and went on extensively about Jesus. I feel that this is professionally inappropriate. I do not want her/him to lose her/his job, she/he is very sweet, but I do think that the administration needs to enforce in her/him the need to keep her/his beliefs to himself/herself. We are all different and entitled not to be proselytized to when in the doctor's office.

Dr. Way has a pleasant manner and listens to my concerns. I chose him because he is an osteopathic physician and I sometimes require manipulations to align my spine and hips. The staff is competent and helpful in answering questions. All and all, visits are stress-free.

I was able to download and fill out paperwork prior to my appointment. I arrived 15 minutes early and was seen right on time. The receptionist was kind and made me feel welcomed. All of my issues were addressed and the PA even took the time to preform minor surgery to remove a skin tag so I would not have to go to a dermatologist! I got my Pneumonia shot too. I was not rushed at all. Well done.
