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 needed to be screened prior to surgery. At my appointment he said that I needed two tests to be done but was ok for surgery. Then he claimed that not what he said. If this was thee case I would have gotten the tests schedule that day. Two days before the surgery I get a call saying that I was on hold till the test were done. The day before my major surgery I am getting a stress test done. I would not see this doctor as I don't trust him.
