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 have a bacterial/viral infection affecting central/autonomic nervous system. I tried seeing Dr. Buggy--gp sent referral. I was told Dr. Buggy does not acknowledge recurring ebv and follows CDC guidelines. That's like saying the world is flat. So he doesn't believe in shingles or herpes sores? WHY is he considered top ID doc when so behind literature/peer reviewed studies on stealth infections that plague many who don't know why they're sick and can only get symptoms treated w/ pharmaceuticals?
