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 Bright is amazing! I move to Bend a year ago & was lucky to find the best RA Doc around.. She is so smart & has the best bed side manner. She helps you find assistance with meds & takes the time needed for your visit. Her response time to emails is quick. Her office staff all work nicely together.

I just met Dr. Bright for my first time yesterday, during this pandemic. The waiting area was very clean and very few people. The staff was very pleasant from check in to check out. Dr. Bright was very informative and spent a lot of time with me. I was very impressed and glad that I got to meet her in person. My next visits will be by video until we get through this crisis. Thank you to all the doctors, nurses and staff for taking all these precautions.

I have been seeing Dr Bright twice a year for several years for an ongoing chronic autoimmune disease and she remembers and reviews my status and symptoms each time, works very well with other physicians/specialists on my team and is truly caring. I never feel rushed - she is extremely thorough.

Would not recommend. Her knowledge of complicated diseases is very limited. She is in a hurry to move you out and misses crucial information in the process.
