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.

My mother's only complaint was that after hearing from everyone that Dr. Persing was the very best there was, the actual surgery (MOHS Reconstructive) was actually performed by two younger understudies. One was his son, so - like I told my Mom - let's assume he had a great mentor. And all preliminary visits, recommendations, subsequent exams, follow-up visits, etc. were done by Dr. Persing himself.
