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.

When I had an appointment with Dr. Shaw for a consultation prior to a colonoscopy I was advised by his office staff that they were going to refuse to honor their contract with Aetna Insurance and I could not receive service from Dr. Shaw. I filed a complaint with Medicare and Aetna and the investigator was told by the office staff that the reason I was refused service was because the doctor was not in the office that day which was a total fabrication. I had to schedule with another doctor.
