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.

He did surgery on my carotid artery about 4 years ago. He was an excellent doctor. He had come highly recommended by my treating physician as well as friends. Following the surgery, he followed up with me annually. Going to his office was like visiting a friend. His staff was awesome and extremely professional and gave every indication of a personal interest in me and my medical care. While I was in the hospital, for surgery, all the nurses raved about Dr. James. He saved my life.
