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. Beard has been my orthopedic doctor for 25 years. He has done meniscus repair surgery on my right knee. In 2014 he replaced both my knees. Everything went excellent and I see him every 2 years for a recheck. He explains everything in terms I can understand and never pushes me to make a decision. He gives me the facts, my options and then it’s my decision. He is kind and has a great personality. I trust him and highly recommend him.
