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.

Very professional and still treats patients as humans. He is warm, kind, gentle and patient. Yet, he is still extremely professional. Those are excellent qualities in any physician. This fact is especially relevant in a medical specialty that requires extreme trust in the patient-doctor relationship with life-altering and life-saving situations.

Dr. Johnson is an extremely professional, knowledgeable and caring doctor. He treats every patient with respect and dignity and he adjusts his style to the patient. I have been his patient for more than 6 years and my mother-in-law also is his patient. He has great empathy for people and I have great confidence in him.
