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 have been a patient of Dr. Willems for over 10 years and he is without a doubt the kindest, most compassionate, knowledgeable doctor I have ever had! He explains everything to you, spends time with you and listens. He treats you like you are the most important part of his day and truly cares. I trust him with my health care and wish there were more doctors like him. His nurses Yan, Cheryl and Sarah always follow up with your questions and really care. We may have to move farther away in the future but we will do everything we can to continue care with Dr. Willems, now matter how far we have to travel.

They don't make doctors better than Dr. Willems. He listens to his patients, communicates without using jargon, gives patients choices, explains risks and benefits, shows genuine compassion, and knows the craft and science of his speciality. I am grateful that he is my doctor.
