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.

I've been going to Dr. Heller for over 35 years from mole removal to skin cancer to a rare skin condition that I have. He is the only dermatologist that can handle this condition. I tried others in my HMO, but it's not the same. He is worth the money out of pocket 100%. My father, mother and aunt all trusted only Dr. Heller. Thanks, Sue Ashley

Anna, at the front desk is efficient and friendly. Dr. Heller is friendly enough, straightforward and to the point. I really like that about him. No fluff, but I did hear him chuckle a couple of times. His nurses/ma are also friendly and helpful. Happy to recommend.
