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. Maisel spent a long time talking with me and going over my history. He seemed very knowledgeable about the subject and took time to explain everything to me, as well as talk about edge cases and other things I should look out for. This was a very thorough exam and I feel very confident in his abilities.
