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.

If you have minor issues like hemorrhoids, do yourself a favor and find another Doctor. He will not examine you unless you have a Colonoscopy first and even then he will not treat hemorrhoids during that colonoscopy as he requires yet another appointment. All this adds up to excessive billing and most insurance companies WILL NOT pay for a Colonoscopy until after the age of 50. More importantly this Doctor is rude and arrogant. He used scare tactics on me saying I was wrong to think hemorrhoids
