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.

This "Dr." is horrible. His bedside manner is non-existent. He does not know how to work with patients to provide clear and concise explanations....and always made us feel rushed. His practice was of such concern, we filed a complaint with the AZ Medical Board. Avoid his practice!

I would recommend Dr. Richards. He is a brilliant, fact-based cardiologist, and spent an hour with me, educating me about my aortic aneurysm. He made room for me in his very busy schedule, and we made a plan for my care. Be prepared to hear the truth...no sugar-coating. I am grateful for Dr. Richards!
