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 Duff and his APRN Paula take kidney disease very serious. They are respectful, kind and work hard to help you understand what is going on and the steps needed for a healthy life. I would recommend all my family and friends to see Dr Duff if they have any questions about their kidneys
