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.

This doctor almost put my son's life at risk. He had Influenza A and Pneumonia. His O2 were low. We went to the ER and the ER doctor wanted to admit him to ICU and she sent him home. At an office visit another doctor wanted to admit him and she sent him home. My son's o2 were below the 90s it took an hr in office with breathing treatments and she still sent him home even tho another doctor wanted him admitted..
