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. Kara Sullivan is not only a top notch gastroenterologist but the most caring physician I have had in years. She is easy to talk to, at appointments, and over the phone or through email, which is unheard of in the medical profession. I would recommend her enthusiastically to anybody.
