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.

One of the best I have come across he has been my first doctor and my last for years living in New York and since I have come into some difficult rectal problems. Now after relocating to the south I am so worried about getting another doctor as good as Dr. Gingold. So far I am still looking.
