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.

Excellent bedside manner when discussing cardiac issues. I worked in healthcare for 40 years and he did explain my cardiac situation better then most had done in the past. Great personality . We share an interest in a hobby but he makes sure I understand my medical issues before we get to talking about other things. I do suggest Dr Kirchhoffer to other people in need of a cardiologist.
