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.

Their office manager Lisa has the worst attitude!! I tried to ask her a couple of questions and she hung up on me! How rude! After I called her back, I asked her why she hung up on me and she goes "I was on the phone with the insurance company, I told you to call back". There was no "please" or "thank you". Who treats their patients like this?? She also said to me "I am firing you as our patient, do not come here again." I mean who says that??? I would not recommend this office to anyone!!!!!!!!
