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.

Excellent oncologist - Very knowledgeable and easy to talk with.. Does a great job explaining how your cancer works and how they plan to attack it, what the choices are, and why she recommends a specific approach versus another approach.. Great bedside manner - and she has a great team. Highly recommend!
