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. Richerts is a great doctor and person. He gives you all the time you need and he explains everything before you leave his office. I have had him as my heart doctor for 18 years and I would never change. He and his staff have saved my life twice in the past 18 years and I am in great health today. Today I climbed my ladder to the second floor (6 times) and replaced 6 flood lights. My son said your not bad for being 76 years old.
