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.

Saw Dr. Gilfert about 30 years ago for a couple of surgeries and office visits. Moved back to the area and started seeing Dr. Gilfert again in 2018 have another appointment today. Dr. Gilfert is the best and I always recommend him to friends.

Saw Dr. Gilfert for possible foot injury - was told needed surgery on first visit - no other treatment available - developed a deep tissue injury due to immobilization after surgery - did not see doctor post op - office staff placed me in a walking boot - continued to have pain - 9 months later was told I had a non-union (without xray confirmation) was told I needed a bone stimulator that would cost me thousands of dollars. Went for second opinion
