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 have been seeing Dr. Puritz since she first started with The Group for Women. During the course of growing older, I have had several issues, some serious. Dr. Puritz explains what my problems are, what she can do and is extremely compassionate. Her surgical skills are excellent. I trust her completely. I am very thankful she is my doctor. Dr. Puritz is the very best around. She is absolutely wonderful.
