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 doctor. Great listener, generous with his time. Able to extract valuable information from his patients to make sure that he is meeting his patients needs while also providing practical and cost effective solutions for his patients. Dr. Chidsey operates a small family practice providing services for his patients not driven by corporate profits. Dr Chidsey has proven to me through my experiences with him to be an excellent surgeon worthy of your most serious consideration.
