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 for a DM retina exam. Everything was explained. Dr found something else in my eye, he explained what it was and let me know that it was something not to worry about. The staff is great, helpful and knowledgeable.

I had a tear in my retina. This should have been corrected in one session it took three and at that point he recommended I see someone else.
