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.

This doctor is a joke!
I had an abcess develop on my rear end. The walk in clinic lanced and drained it but it never healed properly. I was referred to Dr G and visited her for almost a year and boy was I fooled by her lack of knowledge and more so lack of care. I remember the first time she examined me she asked me if I had pets and if I let my dog lick my rear (which is absolutely not true!) I should have walked out at that moment but I was so caught off guard and seeking help that I kept going. She had me bandaging the wound and it was causing even more moisture and buildup of infection. She kept saying “it doesn’t look like a fistula but I don’t know.” Come September, I went to the ER at another hospital and they gave me a ct scan on my abdomen and found I had what appeared to be a fistula. They immediately referred me to a surgeon. I don’t understand why she couldn’t have done this and saved me time and pain! I had to pay a very expensive ER bill to get my problem solved. This lady is a joke!

Returned home from remote overseas assignment carrying two major bacteria in my blood. Thanks to her attention and aggressive treatment they were both knocked out allowing healing of a serious surgical wound. I'm grateful.
