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 a follow-up appointment to review lab work. After the medical assistant took my blood pressure I sat in that room almost an hour before the receptionist came in and told me that the doctor had gone to lunch and derided not to return to the office. The receptionist printed out my lab results and said everything looks normal, do you want make another appointment? I guess his time in more valuable that mine. Needless to say I'm looking for a new doctor!
