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 been a patient of Dr Cornelius for years and I highly recommend her. She is very compassionate and takes as much time as needed to explain things to you. She also is thorough in her assessment of your health problem.

This DR. should not be even serving the public as he has no courtesy or the kindness required to be a doctor. I drove 80 miles to see her for the first time and being late 12 minutes due to her staff giving me wrong directions, she refused to see me. I called her office back to inform them about my situation, she did not even have the courtesy to call back and talk to me. I cannot or and neither should anyone else should trust this type of a person or doctor to provide them any kind of care.
