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.

Sometimes you feel like professionals will be able to help with your struggles whatever they are, but one thing I’d learned during 10 years I seeing this Doctor….is that no one can really help you but God! Be strong and believe that God exist. No medicine will cure you.
