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 used to see her for all my ob care plus any ailment I ever had, even headaches. God bless this woman who put up with me and my health issues for 12 entire years. I met her during an emergency d&c in 1997, that she preformed on the ER. I had a very closed mind about doctors at that point in life. I loved this woman for the hard drive she took for my health, most often against me, she was always right. She'd always say I couldn't come in for a headache at the ob office and I needed to get a GP, but she never refused to see me when I did. She is a phenomenal woman who cares about her patients and will be your very best advocate! I mourned my relationship with her after my tubes were tied with my last c-section, I seen her once in passing since at the hospital and I've never stopped giving thought to her every now and then. If you ever read this thing Johanna, thank you for the many years of service. I, now, do have a GP, Stephanie Robinson, a phenomenal ARNP, I only pick the best!
