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.

Was referred to Dr. Ruston through one of his affiliates and when I finally was able to have my appt with the Dr., he was quite standoffish and I felt I was being stereotyped and put in a generalized category of a drug seeking addict when I was just following my doctors recommendations and follow up appointments. I understand doctors need to be careful as to who they prescribed to but I was not giving a chance to even explain my situation. I am just been recently released from the care of the hospital and sub-acute rehab, from which I have been in since April recovering from an open heart and back procedure. These procedures have left me in an excruciating and debilitating pain by which my day living has become very cumbersome. Either way this doctor was very judgmental and it just goes to show you should never judge a book by its cover.
