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.

Whenever I need to make an appointment it's never a problem The staff are courteous, professional and caring Dr Best has always been on point with my medical conditions and treatment (which are many) I can ask him anything and not feel embarrassed There are many primary care physicians in Suffolk County, but I choose to travel from Patchogue to Pt Jefferson to receive care Why ? Because just like his name, he truly is "The Best"
