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.

Anybody looking for a Dr. would be so lucky to have Dr Chester for their doctor. He is very intelligent and caring. A person would never know he had other patients waiting to see him. He never rushes the appointment. I just can't say enough good things about him. My family and I were so sad when he left Brandon. I wish him all the best in his endevours.

Dr. Chester was most helpful during my son's recent visit. We had a fair amount of paperwork to complete, a burden in healthcare these days. Dr. Chester was very gracious. In addition, we discussed a number of care items and determine what we all felt were appropriate next steps. Great experience.
