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.

I saw him for lower back and sciatic pain down my leg. After a short examination, which included him using a safety pin that he took from his pocket to test for numbness in my thigh and leg, he basically gave me only one option for treatment. He then took what was obviously a non emergent phone call in the middle of my consultation. He ended the visit while on hold during the call and didn't allow me to ask any questions about the treatment plan or possible alternatives. Very unprofessional! And extremely condescending.

I have a herniated disc, and have had it for over 5 months. I finally was able to see Dr. Trost after many weeks of unsuccessful physical therapy, chiropractor treatments, and exercising. I finally got an MRI to confirm I had a herniated disc. When Dr. Trost entered the room, he immediately told me I needed surgery and what the side effects or risks are with the surgery. He did not go into any sort of detail why he felt the other options (which he didn't cover with me) were not appropriate.
