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 child has been a patient for 15 years & I highly recommend Dr. Cangas & Dr. Marcia Houchens, CPNP & staff. We’ve received excellent service since day 1 and I am always impressed by the time the staff will spend to answer questions, listen to your concerns, offer feedback & recommendations, treatments, referrals, etc. I have never had a negative experience here.
