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 keeps his oath
He did my surgery for free when I was 17. I was homeless and very sick. My tonsils had gotten big, with a cyst behind one of them to where I was losing so much weight, couldn't breath or drink anymore. I am very thankful.
