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 communication by Dr and staff. Friendly and caring. Attention to detail and speed of scheduling/coordination of all areas of care. (radiologist, oncologist, mri, lymphedema nurse, lab, and surgery) Provided clear and information list of all appointments, and where to go. Answered and explained everything in clear easy to understand way/terms. Gave patient choices and ability to express desires and needs. Very pleased with compassionate knowledgeable care. Would recommend this Dr.
