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.

Had chemo treatments for ovarian cancer. He never ran a pet scan or a CA-125. Should have done both. Only saw him for original consultation and then once when I insisted upon an appointment with him. CA-125 blood tests is the standard test to establish a baseline to compare to help see whether cancer is recurring. Can you imagine how I felt finding out the bare minimum for ovarian cancer was not done? Trish the chemo nude was awesome though.
