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.

There was an unfortunately long wait to schedule with him, but Joseph is a fantastic doctor. He is kind, polite and has an excellent bedside manner. He is also extremely intelligent -- he caught an illness that another doctor missed and probably saved my life!

Doctor was good but office staff very rude. I was ten minutes late and they refused to see me, had to wait 3 weeks for another appointment. I will never return!
