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.

Horrible experience twice
Dr. Wittek did not take the time to get to know my illness. I had been using this medical group for 12 years and had two experiences with this doctor dismissing me. I have lymphedema and was just in the hospital for infection and was on IV antibiotics. Even though my incision is red and there is swelling in that breast, he dismissed that and only wanted to concentrate on a mass that was found after my MD had requested I call this group for my infection. I will never use this Dr. for any kind of surgery that I would need. It is too bad. I had been seeing Dr. Failing for 12 years in this group.

Dr. Wittek was phenomenal while providing care for my hernia surgery. Dr. Wittek took the time to explain the procedure and listen to my concerns. When complications arose he was there to help me through the difficult time and continues to inquire as to my well being two years post surgery.
