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. Ross completly resolved my cervical vertebral disc injury in a single day-surgery. He's brilliant, modest and will not do more invasive procedures (as some do) in order to increase his billings. I'm a medical professional and recognize Don Ross as one of the very best there is.

Dr. Ross has done two surgeries on my husband at the Portland VA. He also noted risks too high on third. Trust this man completely with my husbands medical conditions. Very open and up front with his opinions, and if he feels the risks are too high for his patients, he will explain it to you in english, not always medical terms. If I could give him 100 stars, I would!
