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. Lillehei is phenomenal. His bedside manner, patient care, and explanation/reasoning of procedures are the best that we have encountered in the medical profession. He truly defines what professional means and goes above and beyond to make sure that the patient needs and family needs and concerns are thoroughly addressed. He has performed multiple surgeries on our son. We highly recommend him and wish that all surgeons and doctors were as caring, comprehensive, and knowledgeable as he is.

Dr Lillehei saved our daughter's life several times in her infancy and he was incredibly kind, patient and supportive to her and to us. She is now a happy and healthy teenager. We will always be grateful to him.
