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.

No matter how good or bad this doctor is doesn't matter, as the total experience is horrible. His office staff is extremely rude. I took my 20 year old son multiple times to see him and every time his staff in the front office were just burdened that we were there. The doctor visit itself was fine but checking in and out was the same rude. Calling them for anything the same thing. If they don't like people they definently need another occupation.

Doctor was anxious to set up biopsy even before the examination. Was sent to scheduling to get dates. They said I need to pick a date, then change/cancel if needed. That was IMPOSSIBLE. I asked for other dates - the scheduler said: no. I tried to call and cancel, I continuously was sent to voice mail - twice to the wrong office telling me that I (not them) made a mistake. Call center that handles 14 offices they told me- not my problem. 2nd opinion said biopsy not required yet.

Office staff is beyond rude and are too busy talking to each other to properly handle their patients. I was told I would receive a call back to setup a procedure to check for cancer and never got that call. I finally called and the representative said Why didn't you schedule it when you were here, you should have done that yourself. Well I was told someone would call me. Then they schedule it 3 months out when I have a high cancer risk. VERY unprofessional.
