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.

Recently had mitral valve repair surgery with dr Baker. I am happy to recommend Dr Baker and staff. Dr Baker was very thorough in advising me of what to expect. Surgery and recovery was much easier than I originally anticipated thanks to dr Baker and his ability in performing my surgery
