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've already recommended Dr. Simmons to a family member. Dr. Simmons is a true professional and he make sure you're comfortable in the examination room. While speaking with you he shows a genuine concern for your health and well being assuring that you are a priority. I hope he's still practicing when I reach my golden years.
