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.

Dr. Lee has been treating me for chronic pain due to disk disease, stenosis and osteoarthritis of the spine. He shows concern for me not only as a patient, but as a whole person in need of personal care. He has referred me to cutting edge programs in non-invasive pain management involving both mind and body. As my condition has degenerated, he has made excellent suggestions and guided me with sensitivity.
