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.

Dr. Ettner is one of the kindest non-judgemental physicians I’ve ever had. I used to be scared to go to the doctor. No more. I have newly diagnosed conditions and am excited to work on these with his guidance. His goal for you is self care and encourages you to be your best. He takes time to talk to you and actually, listen to you. Very caring and patient.

Dr. Ettner is great. He's very patient and will take the time to talk to you and listen to you in terms of treatment. He doesn't prescribe unnecessary treatment and will answer any questions you have. The only downside is he's so busy, so it takes a long time to get an appointment, unless it's for something urgent.

Dr Ettner is one of the nicest, kindest human beings I know. He's a doctor with a sense of humor and takes the time you need/want with each visit. (That kinda means, expect to be late for late in the day appointments.)

He's the best and now my insurance says he's out of network... ridiculous. I don't want my child to be followed by anyone else.

Dr. Ettner has been my physician for over 23 years. He listens, returns phone calls and explains what the issue is. He marches to a different drummer one that I wish all doctors could even listen to.
