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.

He has a very poor bedside manner, he's very negative and I would not take my worst emery to him. I only met this so called dr during my mother's hospital stay, would highly discourage anyone from going to him.

×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. Donald Decoy, MD?
Dr. Decoy is not very tactful when dealing with patients or their families. Calls family members and over the phone states that he is not sure that the patient is going to "pull through " this time!! Also speaks negatively to patients and their families even speaking of possible malignancies when there has been no diagnosis. Is very derogatory when speaking to patient and their families.
