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.

Dr. Carsten is one of the rarest doctors you will ever come in contact with. Number 1. He actually treats you like a human being, NOT A $ He is smart, truly smart in the medical profession. I wish I would have found him years ago! This would have saved me a lot of heart ache and money. He listens, he talks back and he truly understands everything and treats your medical issue. I would recommend him to EVERYONE!!!
