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.

Dr. Kettlehut and all the staff at the 84th location are wonderful. I've been seeing Dr. K for a year and half for both allergy shots and asthma. Staff are so nice and Dr. K is funny and efficient. Love this place.

Dr. Kettelhut never makes me feel rushed during a visit. I was a mess when I first saw him and over the years he has turned me into a healthy person. My asthma and allergies are now under control. He has a great sense of humor and I feel we are good friends as well. I have recommended him to friends who have also been pleased with his care.
