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.

Dr Templeton is the best doctor my son has ever seen. We have been going to see him since the office opened. He will see my son any time even when he doesn't have appointment and which ever doctor is on call after hours will call you back within 10 minutes.

Dr. Templeton has been excellent to my son and our family. He is responsive to our needs and has even called us back at home on the weekend when we had an emergency. We very much trust him in caring for our child with special needs.
