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.

After 1 visit he was accusing me of taking other drugs, which he actually writes the prescription for. He also accused me of drinking. Neither my wife or I drink. I do not drink. Then he accused me of selling my prescriptions. He did all this in front of a group of students from Nova Southeastern. I used to work for a SC PD as a narcotics agent. I still keep a TS security clearance from working in the intelligence community. I have talked to an attorney about suing him for slander.
