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 was so disappointed in the surgical process, Even as a nurse, I was treated very poorly by his staff, After surgery I was left alone for several hours and my husband kept trying to get me help and the staff ignored the call light. I had such high hopes for Dr. Mason, but his whole staff is rude in the office and don't act like they care. Forget follow up care after the initial visit, and be very cautious financially! VERY EXPENSIVE facility

Dr. Mason listens, he really listens. He is kind, does not dismiss my concerns or questions and gives me the feeling he is looking out for me. What more can I ask? He's great.
