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.

Fine. Dr. Fox was fine. The visit as a whole terrible. I waited for over 45 minutes from my appointment time before being seen, then another 15-20 between the nurse and the doctor coming in. The first visit the medical records system was acting up, but it was the same lengthy wait for my second visit. I wish I could withhold my copayment for spending an exceedingly long time in the office. I shouldn’t need to take 1/2 a day for a 15 minute visit.
