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.

Went to her for years, so nobody can say I didn't try. She is a terrible pediatrician. Was completely obsessed with me losing more and more weight, even after I reached a healthy BMI. When I injured my back playing sports, she withheld information that I had disc degeneration. She also shamed me for asking to see a therapist (I didn't know at the time I didn't need a primary care doctor's approval. Again, I was young, how was I supposed to know?) and started saying I was only asking because I had low self esteem and my boyfriend had broken up with me (at the time I had never even had a boyfriend before). Overall I have no idea why she was so cruel to me when I was at such an impressionable age. Her office also had 2+ hour wait times, was untidy/dirty, and she was extremely dismissive of basic questions. Do not give her your time, trust, or money. Also possibly switch to Facey if you can, it's a much better medical group and I've had better luck with doctors there.

Poor bedside manner with the kids. Business like and not friendly. The waiting room is loud, dirty, and not exclusive to pediatrics.
