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 had a surgical eye procedural today with Dr. Gooch and the procedure and follow-up went exactly as Dr Gooch explained it. He is professional, caring, always explains what's happening in language I can understand. He is compassionate and a great communicator. I completely trust Dr. Gooch. I am diabetic and I see Dr. Gooch once a year to ensure my eyes are in check and I always leave feeling like I am in the best of hands!

He was very gracious and I came to him because he is a glaucoma specialist. My previous doctor scheduled me once a year. I think that is not often enough to make sure your condition is maintaining a good pressure level.
