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.

Dr. Heather Nesty is an Opthomologist that specializes in glaucoma. I have been seen her for a number of years now to control my glaucoma. I find her very good and knowledgeable and very pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend her. I would not want to trust anyone else with my eyes.

Dr. Nesti was confident, but not arrogant, communicative, pleasant, friendly, and I left feeling that I am been seen and advised as to my condition by a doctor who knew what she was doing. The staff, from the moment I entered the office until I left, was competent, friendly, courteous and made me feel that I was in good hands.
