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.

We were very pleased to be seen by Dr. Jackson, who was incredibly thorough, kind and patient. I'm a nurse, so I can tell you that he is one of the good ones who is an expert in his specialty, and he has an encouraging and pleasant manner. He willingly took extra time to assess symptoms and to ensure that appropriate tests were ordered and scheduled, as well as getting to the heart of my family member's issue. Highly recommended!
