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.

Dr who really cares
I have been working with Dr Gardner for just short time, as I battle stage 4 cancer. Her compassion and care is unlike any I’ve experienced on this journey this far. The comfort of knowing she is just a text or a phone call away is beyond comforting, and the time she takes to make sure you are as comfortable and stable as you can possibly be mentally and physically.
