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.

The Very Best Physician
Of all the physicians I've been to in my lifetime Dr Kass is the very best. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would have to say he is definitely over 10. He is kind, courteous, has very good listening skills and extremely informative. Has a nice sense of humour too. I feel very lucky to have such a wonderful Physician.
