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.

After 13 treatments which were not effective, I have suffered severe memory loss. While I was explained that memory loss was a side effect I was not told how severe it could be. This doctor told me any loss would be short term & insignificant. Not the case. During the timing of my treatment I have several completely blacked out experiences. I have lost long & short term memories & cannot speak to my previous level of vocabulary. Dr. Chaffee's response? "Too bad". He should not be practicing.
