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.

Absolutely love Dr. Purcell and Step Pediatrics! They have been a godsend to my family. She is wonderful when it comes to complicated medical cases, and even better she is a great medical team leader. She will pull together all of the specialist doctor's information and look at the whole person instead of just one organ system. She has helped my children grow into fine young adults!
