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.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Schimel - he is the best! He was very knowledgeable and took the time to answer all of my questions and address my concerns before my procedure. The operation went perfectly. I would strongly recommend Dr. Schimel to anyone with retina issues.

Great, thorough and wonderful physician. My mother had retinal issues and we were very worried. He calmed all our fears and helped her vision. I can't thank him enough!
