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.

This is the best, most caring doctor I've ever had and I'm 73. Dr. Reichel has been my eye doctor for over 20 years. I credit him with saving my remaining eyesight 10 years ago when he rushed me to surgery Thanksgiving weekend 12 years ago. I see him every 6 months. The BEST!!
