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.

Great doctor who is always upbeat. explains things well. Makes patient feel very relaxed even when shoving a needle in them. Only downside is, I still believe he is a Cleveland Browns fan.

Review of Dr. Petrolla, 2/1/22
Dr. Petrolla is a warm and receptive physician. He has a very positive demeanor. He understood my pain and was doing his best to alleviate it. PLUS, he knew all about the Buffalo Bills vs KC Chiefs game on January 23. Chatting with him about Josh Allen helped alleviate my pain.

I have been with Dr. Petrolla since 2015 and trust his judgment explicitly. He has controlled my cervical spine issues since my surgery, with TLC for my health and well being. As well as Rachael. I definitely refer him always.
