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. Wachter is the most conscientious, competent, experienced and trustworthy doctor I've known. He has an excellent demeanor, is extremely knowledgeable in his field and serves as speaker and consultant to various immunology organizations. I personally can't think of a more qualified doctor or anyone else I'd rather have as a resource and allergist.
