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.

I always felt rushed and ignored. I was given 1 extremely expensive medicine that didn’t work and then told I didn’t need to come in anymore cause to her my condition looked better. I’m still struggling with it and in the process of finding a new doctor. I felt robbed and left feeling upset after every visit. The nurses were more kind and helpful than she ever was. I felt more like a piggy bank than a patient.

Dr. Rhoads is a wonderful doctor. She looked at my issues and sent me right to CCH for surgery. Dr. Witterhold did the actual surgery but I was very satisfied with Dr. Rhoads referral and how fast I was taken care of.
