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.

I tried to make an appointment. I was on hold over a two hour period and caught in an on hold message prison that continued to say that my call would be answered soon. Instead, the phone would ring like someone would answer it but it would go to the on hold message again. At 4:20 pm, someone picked up and I spoke with them and they asked me to give them a minute and they put me in hold again. I stayed on hold until 4:30 and they auto disconnected my call at 4:30 when they closed!
