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 received a lipoma excision and after surgery it took 12 hours after surgery for my post-op pain prescription to be called in. I spent the time in-between in a lot of pain.

I saw Dr. James Anderson as a federal for a hernia I have. He refused to do the surgery because he said I was fat and would die. He also said 60% don't take. He wanted me to get a stomach balloon and lose weight fast, then have bariatric surgery and when he felt my weight was right than he would operate.
