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.

I am so pleased with the attention and care that I get at Chelsea Eye. I had lasik surgery 12 years ago and recently had cataract surgery. Dr. Coad is a very skilled Opthamologist and surgeon. He is very caring and has a great bedside manner, always putting your mind at ease and answering all your questions. Less than 24 hours after surgery I had 20/30 vision with minimal discomfort. I recommend him highly! Can't wait to have my second eye done so I can see 20/20!
