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.

Overall, was a good experience. A few notes: -The receptionists are always so friendly and helpful. Really appreciate that. -It seems like the doctors are overbooked. I was told I was the first appt of the day (at 10am), but there was another person also booked for 10am and they were seen before me and I ended up waiting for more than 30 min. -The nurses were pretty unfriendly and seemed unhappy. One asked me to sign a waiver but seemed unhappy when I asked to read the waiver first.
