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.

Excellent! Dr Ball has change my life. I haven’t been in the hospital and I haven’t been sick in five years. I may get the sniffles but I have never had a full-blown allergy attack in the five years I’ve been his patient. He’s 10 stars for me!

I am sure he is very knowledgeable in his field but he was not a good fit for us. He prefers to give instructions and they be taken without question. This is not a good quality in a doctor, specifically one who sees children. None of my questions were answered to my satisfaction and I wasn’t treated like an adult with legitimate concerns for her child but instead was treated like a child myself. We won’t even be back for our test results. I will be taking them to another provider.

Highly recommended. It is difficult to find a treatment for skin issues suffered by nonwhite persons. Dr. Bull has expanded his knowledge to include effective treatment for nonwhite patients and the uniques issues they suffer
