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.

Great, absolutely fantastic. She took my hand from day one and made this horrible journey of being a breast cancer patient to being a breast cancer survivor seem oh so less terrifying. Thank you for your kindness and intelligence when it came to my healthcare. Another wonderful doctor that on a scale of 1 to 10, is a 10+
