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've been with him for 4+ years, the most intelligent Dr. I've ever dealt with. He's very personable and knowledgeable on all health issues and will explain/answer any questions you may have without talking "at" you as if your stupid. I used to live five minutes away from his office, now I'm an hour away and wouldn't think about changing physicians even if I were further. His compassion for people is real and I've seen him go above and beyond to help someone I love. He's a great man!
