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.

Dr. Smith is such a compassionate oncologist, and always has time for only a few or lots of questions. He never seems to be rushed, but acts as if we are his only patients. He explains well-what to expect, drug interactions, etc. My husband and I think he's the best, and do not feel that we would've received better care anywhere else in this great nation.
