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 had an endoscopy performed by Dr. Egan, which was totally unacceptable. I have been having these for the past 25 years by other physicians with complete relief, but have had no relief of my issues with this last procedure. I am now forced to find another physician to perform this procedure again to correct my still present swallowing issues.
