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.

If I could leave zero stars, I would. This was the worst derm exam I have ever had. She checked the lymph glands in my groin by jamming her hand into my crotch without any warning. I have a kidney transplant down there and it made me jump off the exam table. She checked my buttocks by pulling back the waist band of my briefs and glancing down for less than a second. Find another doctor.

Excellent! Dr. Fisher explains the process or problem very well and takes her time with you to make sure you understand. Very pleasant and thorough. She has frozen lesions, shaved some and taken out a melanoma. I’m pleased with all she has done and will continue to see her.
