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.

My retina surgeon recommended Valley Eye. I chose Dr. Halfpenny from her web reviews......and they were accurate. Went for cataract surgery. Personable, knowledgeable, takers the time to explain procedures, patient, answers questions, meticulous to detail. Staff and office are 5 stars as well. Would gladly recommend Dr. Halfpenny.
