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. Schafer was alright for me The only downside was his office felt like a principal's office. I didn't feel like I was listened to fully. I went to a new dr and was told that the meds I was on weren't for my condition. He might have thought it would work but no one is perfect. doctors need to meticulously and fine tooth combed every single symptom to try to figure out what is really needed as far as medication or otherwise. 4 stars. You weren't right for me but that's how it goes.
