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. Gurka was absolutely awesome! He spent so much time with me even after finding that I did not have a pulmonary issue. My case being a complicated one he went more than the extra mile to send me in a direction that I needed to go. I can't thank him enough for his time,effort and patience. This dr deserves a rating higher than 5 stars!!!!
