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.

Well I don't know I need surgery but can't get anyone to answer the phone so I can set up an appointment so I can't review the doctor but evidently he needs office staff

Wonderful doctor. I love the way he interacts with his patients. Very great personality, knows how to make you feel comfortable and take away any worries you may have. He is able to help out our residents at the nursing home. Also it was a wonderful thing he and his nurses and office staff did for our residents and collected items for Christmas, stocking stuffers. The residents loved all the things brought. It was greatly appreciated.

Dr. Oehrlein is wonderful! I had slammed my foot against the corner of my bed & thought I broke my toe, and he was the first person I reached out to! He was able to see me quickly and treat my toe! Also, he's hilarious! He definitely will make you feel comfortable & at ease, & I completely trust his knowledge and expertise! He's also more than happy to answer any questions you have! I've seen a lot of podiatrists over the years, but I have definitely found my new specialist in Dr. Oehrlein

Receptionist very inconvenienced by my asking if they accepted my Military Prime insurance. Was not sure if the office accepted it and that I would have to call for the approval or she would do it later at her convenience. I have a written referral from my UAB Dr and made her aware of this. She remained inconvenienced by my call so I will look elsewhere.
