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.

Run! I took my mom for pains/swollen, feet and legs. Never looked at her legs, was dismissive, can't do anything attitude. Come to find out, my mom had a blot clot and has been in the hospital since. Yes, I would say he deviated from the standard of care.

I cannot say enough good things. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Called me back quickly and worked with me to accommodate my schedule, even a little later than their usual appointments. The office is modern, clean and well-maintained. Dr. Sales was great in answering questions and explaining things in plain English. He was friendly and gentle. He called me personally the next morning to find out how I was doing and even answers emails promptly! Thanks.

Dr. Sales and his staff are nothing short of amazing. My dad went in for what is normally a simple procedure but due to other issues he has there were a few complications and they were right there every step of the way at all hours of the day and night. I would highly recommend their practice!!

He was falling asleep while I spoke to him. He was dismissive.He had not read the report sent to him by my hemo before I arrived. When asked about varicose Veins removal possibilty,after speaking of my DVT problem,which I was sent to him for, he made a rude comment of the look of my veins in my legs and said since I had DVT's there was nothing he could do for me. When I went on the portal for my report. He had inserted the INCORRECT DX AND sent it to the wrong doctor!
