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 son saw Dr. Cummings when he had strep throat. She was great at making him feel comfortable and helping him not be nervous about the throat swab. Would definitely feel comfortable seeing her again if my son's normal doctor is out of the office.

My husband and I took our two daughters for their wellness check-up. Dr. Cummings was very professional, kind, friendly and she has a great bedside manner. We could not be happier and our daughters enjoyed their visit as well.
