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.

Watch your wallet!
Speak to the claims specialist, not the front office, before getting ANY procedure from this office. A fully covered routine procedure that should have cost me $0 out of pocket is costing me more than $1K. Understanding what happened required MULTIPLE phone calls and emails (after the last phone call, Maria stated she would get back to me, and never did, but the bill was sent to collections). The claims specialist was eventually able to explain to me what happened, that it has happened multiple times, and that they have informed the doctor's office about it - and the need to fully inform patients - but obviously, the problem continues. Additionally, you don't get an appointment time for your procedure, just the time you're supposed to show up at the outpatient facility so that you can wait hour(s) to be seen. I felt like I was on a conveyor belt on an assembly line (maybe that's the norm, but I found it distasteful).

I wasn't listened to
I left crying after being told that my stomach issues only had to do with my anxiety. I can't function at the level of a normal person with the chronic pain I'm in, so I just won't accept that answer.
