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.

He is the best. He performed surgery on my neck with exceptional results. Listens and follows through.

He came into my third appointment screaming because I didn’t agree with DX. It was scary to say the least. I have suffered migraines for a year. I asked for a second opinion and he freaked out he said no wasn’t going to happen it was just migraines he didn’t care that the radiologist says cancer he is the doctor. He knows better. He replaced my previous surgeon who retired for personal reasons who was going to operate then here comes this guy who won’t even treat my symptoms let alone operate. Do not go to him if want real treatment

Get a second opinion. I feel the same pain after surgery and recovery as I had before the surgery.
