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 met Dr Brinkman in wound care treatment after emergency surgery due to acute diverticulitis. He took such good care of me and showed he genuinely cared. He was so extremely trustworthy I asked him to do my reversal. That was 04-21-2016. I would highly recommend him for surgery again. I was never scared.
