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.

Excellent Pain Management Doctor! He takes time to discuss your medication and also just about your normal life and at least for me he remembers our previous discussions 2 months earlier.

Dr. Royster is a wonderful doctor. He has been very kind to me and is very compassionate. He includes me in treatment decisions and seems to truly care to want my pain under control. The staff at the office are not as friendly. The PAs and other office staff could care less about you. I have felt judged and treated poorly. Also the wait time is unacceptable. I understand wait times at doctors office, but over an hour past appointment time every visit is ridiculous.
