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.

Not so good. Offers no counseling, nor any referral to counseling, not interested in hearing my problems. Only interested in prescribing drugs. Office staff rarely in office, slow to respond to requests for prescription renewal or appointments. I find this collection of all 5 star reviews to be very misleading, and possibly fraudulent.
