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. Whitaker completed a thorough Nerve conduction test. He did not ask for or read the paperwork I completed as I was asked to. The report did not contain any recommendations or next steps. The doctor referred to me as crazy when I got upset that my PCP did not give him the disk of my MRI as I was told she would. Under no circumstance should any doctor refer to a patient as crazy. The stigma around mental illness is profound and being referred to as crazy is significantly inappropriate. It is also inappropriate for the doctor to say you are making me work too hard and this is to complicated. Health care disparities are documented specifically when a patient is labelled as crazy. Any label of mental illness impacts how medical staff perceive a patient and perceive the validity of the self report. Health care availability is also limited. As is noted previously I have left several other reviews, all very positive.
