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.

Waited too long for appointment time for our 9 year. Asked many questions and kept saying she knew what was going on. Stated she would call later to give us prescription. Waited for week no call. Called her office and waited another week...no call back. Waited another week and complained and she finally called. Stated she was sending prescription to pharma as we talk. Well been over two weeks and nothing. Don't waste your time. She must hate her job or just doesn't care.
