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.

She is a Fantastic doctor. I have CHF and within a month my exchange went from 33% to 57%. Her appointments are never rushed. Her concern for your overall health is genuine. Well worth my drive into Seattle from Camano. Easily reached with questions or concerns

She is AMAZING. Wouldn’t go to anyone else but her. She always listens to my concerns and truly cares about her patients. Never rushes the appointment and I always leave feeling better than when I came in.
