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.

He saved my husband’s life without having to perform a colonoscopy as UAB acute care emergency surgeon said. My husband had an 18 year old hernia surgery that had become unattached and had obstructed his bile. He along with Dr Richardson in Baptist ER correctly diagnosed and corrected my husband’s problem. I will be forever thankful.
