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.

I am really impressed with the amount of time she spends with my daughter and I. She uses scale tools for my daughter and her teachers to fill out when there are med changes. The staff really tries to accommodate for us driving a long distance to see her. Dr. Vista Wayne also does a lot of education and explains why she is leaning more toward one medication as opposed to another. She is always the one that comes to the waiting room to get us. She is just very genuine and really wants to help.
