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 was extremely disappointed with this dr. He spent ten minutes with my child. He was rude and condescending. We ended up paying over $1000 for nothing and this was with insurance. Zero bedside manner. Nothing was resolved. The worst experience I have ever had with a doctor and the only bad experience at UNC which is full of caring doctors and staff.
