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.

He is hands down the best doctor I have ever seen! and trust me I have been to many. I have been passed off from urologist to urologist and specialist to specialist because of my difficult case. Dr. Brouillette is the first to not give up and pass the buck. He is also extremely compassionate and obviously cares about his patients.

This is the most competent, compassionate, doctor we have ever had. He has completely turned my husband's life around from chronic kidney stones, kidneys that almost shut down, now to restored levels of kidney function. We would recommend him to anyone. He is interested in every aspect of the patient's health and can spot potential problems before they do harm. We are so thankful for him and his help.
