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.

My experience with this doctor was on behalf of my mother. I would never recommend a patient in any degree of life expectancy to visit this doctor's office. The staff does not listen carefully to life threatening calls of concern, and they do not pass urgent information to the doctor that is life threatening. The doctors on call are also awful, and in our case either didn't call us back or gave us horrible advice. If you value the life of your loved one, do take good care in reading all reviews. I would give no stars if I could.

I would never recommend this doctor to family or friends. His office staff are very unfriendly and cold, especially the office manager. Please, never go to this doctor.
