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 Fortenberry is by far the most experienced vascular surgeon that Has ever treated me. I was diagnosed with PAD ten years ago, And I sustained a cut on my heal which within a couple of weeks turned into a sore bigger then a half dollar, It was so painful that I couldn't cover my foot with a sheet, I was told that I had a fifty fifty chance of having my foot amputated, That's when Dr Fortenberry went into action. He put a stent into my leg, Allowing oxygen to my extremities, And saved my leg!
