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 appreciate that my procedure began exactly on schedule. The doctor and assistant worked seamlessly to prepare everything and truly focused on keeping me informed about what was going to happen. I was comfortable the entire time. This was one of my best procedure experiences!

From start to finish, I have no complaints. Dr. Kemmerling was very thorough in explaining what he was doing & his nurse, Karen, was such a calming influence on me throughout. I would highly recommend coming here if you're having vein problems.
