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.

I saw Dr. Volfson for sleep and eating disorder. She’s the most caring doctor I have ever met. What she prescribed has worked. My son was in the mental health system for twenty years and I think he would be alive today if we had taken him to her.

My granddaughter saw Dr. Volfson at Mayo last week. The doctor was very informative and thoughtful in her consultation with her, as she is special needs. She went over medications and made changes to help her. We were very impressed with her knowledge and prompt responses to our many questions.
