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.

At 64 yrs I have seen my share of docs. Today was the best ever first visit. A+ for listening, information provided, and for the sometimes intangible but invaluable quality.. helping the patient feel comfortable in awkward moments of an exam. Very highly recommended!

Dr Bakes is intelligent, patient and caring. She is friendly and professional with a calming demeanor that inspires confidence. The office visit and examination were thorough and not at all rushed. She gave clear explanations pre-op and post-op. She answered emails right away, too!
