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. Cassidy is the best doctor we have come in contact with during the course of any medical treatment our daughter has ever received. Thorough, responsive, proactive and extremely caring for her patients. My husband and I could not recommend her enough if you want the best possible care for your child. She takes the time to answer any question your child has, and approaches her treatment with them as a team with you as a parent, and your child being included in the plan. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Dr. Cassidy is my 3 yr old daughter's doctor. Every time I contact her with a question, she responds very quickly. I never have a problem making an appointment or getting help when calling and emailing. We never have to wait long for our appointments. She takes a good amount of time with you in the room and gives a very thorough examination. Everything is explained clearly and I couldn't be happier with her interaction and bedside manor with my child. Highly recommended!!
