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. Kanter is an incredible physician. I'd been struggling to get properly diagnosed, medicated, and treated for over three years, and was in a cycle of being seen by different residents every time I went in when Dr. Kanter stepped in and took over my care. He would not stop until we found a medication that worked for me, and we finally did, which has changed my life. He is a brilliant man with a sharp mind and a wonderful way with his patients. I cannot recommend him enough.
