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.

Dr. Hirschowitz spent a lot of time helping my good friend understand what his options were and why he was suggesting a specific treatment. He is very caring and knowledgeable, but does not seem to have a complex about knowing at all. So glad the Lexington VA has him on staff.
